Should Vulcans get a speed trait?

That seems to imply that at least some Vulcans move at super-human speed.
I had the impression they were talking about reflexes, not movement speed. Neither "stronger than everyone" nor "faster than everyone" may not mean "super-human", no one in Sisko's crew was a professional body builder, weightlifter or sprinter. So even if individual Vulcans may be able of feats beyond what the best human can achieve, the average Vulcan is just stronger and faster han the average (fit) Human, but not necessarily stronger or faster than the best trained humans.
