Would it have been interesting here? Absolutely but it just wouldn't have fit with the rules of the concept.
That's not true, in just about every episode, Sam plays the character a little differently, suggesting that he always absorbs a little bit of the leapee.

What about in "Private Dancer" where he knew how to dance like a stripper despite never learning how? He had a "What the Hell am I doing?" look on his face at the time...

I suggest you listen to all of the Quantum Leap Podcast, in each episode they make note of where it seems like Sam has absorbed a bit of the leapee.
