Just because we never saw them doesn't mean they're not there.
Even if the Federation knew about Cardassians in the 23rd Century, if no hostile relations existed between Cardassians and the Federation until the 24th Century, then Cardassians can't be considered as a potential enemy for the Federation. So such a zone would be limited to enemies that were seen in TOS and Enterprise as long as the enemy in Enterprise is not an ally in TOS. Also such a zone should be limited to races that should belong there so no Bajorans or Liberated Borg.
