I'll say this; I think Sisko (and Picard) were the most law-abiding when it came to adhering to the Prime Directive, at least compared to Kirk.
The alpha quadrant of Kirk's time was akin to the Old West. It's not surprising that he played fast and loose with the Prime Directive. Sisko and Picard were subject to greater interference from Federation bureaucrats, so they had to exercise greater caution with Starfleet's most important general order.
