No. She did that for Ben.

And I don't think they dropped the ball with Quark at all. I think you'd be hard pressed to find many shows sci-fi and non-sci-fi that handle recurring, minor, and secondary characters as well as DS9 did.
Quark was neither recurring, minor, nor secondary. Armin Shimerman's name was on the opening credits for Pete's sake. Additionally, he got lots of screen time, and plenty of episodes revolved around him.
