I think that that 'outsider' perspective was very important to early DS9.

Kira had no special loyalty to Starfleet at that time and was very much a vocal advocate for Bajor's best interests and not Starfleet's interests.

Laren could have been more conflicted. While that can be good, I think in this instance not having a conflicted character about Bajor was better for the show.
