I had thought of this myself not too long ago.
I think it boils down to how much they are wiling to store in the player data, the same reasoning behind none of the doffs having customization.
The thought I came up with is to allow unused Captain costume slots to be 'shifted' to bridge officers.
This solves the problem of server space, as they've determined the price point of more costumes per player themselves.
But also brings up some potential problems with Boff trading.
You shouldn't be able to do this to boffs you haven't recruited to your roster so that is a non-issue.
You could make the officers bind when given extra uniform slots... but that kind of hinders getting said officers trained in skills you can't teach.
Unless of course they come up with a training system that doesn't require the boffs to switch hands and can be done with bound officers.
