I actually go there and sit my character down on a bench whenever I'm reading books; the water, quiet crowd noises, and the low-level city sounds are really nice background noises, and you don't have all the obnoxious, noisy crap people do in large groups, or all the computer/reactor noises like you have on DS9 or on the ships. It's also a nice place to go for quick bank/exchange/shipyard needs, as long as you don't need the STF store (which is going away, anyway).
Bajor loads much faster than DS9, so I sometimes go there instead of the station if I'm looking for a mail terminal or bank. THere's also some foundry missions there for quick dailies and the place lags alot less than DS9 when I'm playing via wifi. And it's pretty.
I go there for that reason as well if I don't have any STF stuff to get or look at.

I think Bajor is the most pretty map in the game, and I do visit it every once in a while.
The day/night cycle is simply stunning, and they got the atmosphere of the place just right with the ambient sounds and hustle and bustle. It's really my favourite map.
They could create some other reasons to go there though, other than the 2800 feature episode (which will always cause a steady flow of traffic in a social zone). A tailor would be a good idea, and a daily or two. The temple is very peaceful, as is the waterfall and the fish. I can quite happily sit and watch the sun rising between the buildings.
I think in some of these zones a doorway should launch an interior map that is somewhat customisable so you can make your home there if you wish.
