And in the end, isn't it basically the best thing that the Federation returns Khan to exactly the same state at which they found him? Khan probably did get a trial, but that's the best sentence I can think of, really.
That's what I think. Who's to say that medical science doesn't advance far enough that someone- Bashir, for instance- is able to help Khan and his followers by modifying their behavior? Perhaps Bashir utilizes a procedure similar to what he used to treat Serena as a means of "curing" Khan. Keeping him and his people in stasis allows for that possibility.
