I know what you mean, but I think what happened here was a new door into longer consequences. The Breen have really been pushed down in the hierarchy in the Pact, and the Kinshaya could be leaving. This might seem small potatoes, but in realworld politics, this can have lasting impact. Other authors can work with this, changing dynamics in the relationships between pact members (the Gorn and Romulans are more open to the Federation than others) and how non-Federation and non-Pact words look at both sides and influence the relationsips between all of those. So, yeah, it might seems as nothing much, but long terms, this could do quite a lot. Not the to mention the stronger bonds between the UFP and Klingon Empire.
