This basically already exists with the engineering duty officer assignments to experiment with shields, weapons, engines, etc. You get new gear. Assuming that it's better than what you have now, it's a permanent upgrade.
They could add in slightly juicier versions of these things that are only available via these assignments to make it tempting. (MK XII stuff, special  bonuses not available on otther gear, maybe a chance at MK XII special ops equipment, etc.)
I don't see them giving a permanent bonus that isn't tied to equipment or officers though.
