This is quite possibly the biggest error in your entire argument, when the borg see new, stronger technology to assimilate they are more than willing to throw drone after drone, sphere after sphere and cube after cube at it to assimilate it or someone who knows it well, into their collective, then all knowledge of it is spread throughout all nearby drones and transmitted to the collective allowing them to use said technology or to adapt against it.

It is for this reason why Voyager couldn't allow One to join the collective as they would then have had 29th century federation technology to work with.

The ultimate problem with this, the Borg may assimilate an Iconian vessel at one point. Which will ultimately change the current face of the Alpha Quadrant forever.
