The federation needs some worthwhile way to use non-dominion Prisoner doffs.
"Negotiate Prisoner Exchange" is too rare and only tends to give green doffs. "Transfer Prisoners to Starfleet Command" has practically no reward at all.
And thats it. Klingon side can trade them for dilithium or GPL in bulk, in addition to the occasional prisoner exchange. Starfleet has only the rare prisoner exchanges or giving them up for free.
