How should I answer this?
Considered - yes. Will they be actually included - I don't know yet.

Actually, we've already solved this issue - number of doors. If you take a look at that tracking table we have, there is a column called PDWE - Passenger Door Width Equivalent. Each 1-person door adds 1 to the total score, the higher the score, the faster the loading. And this is actually how it works IRL too.

I'm not really worried about misuse of trams. We are replicating real trams and their real capacities. Most other vehicle sets do the same and I think they will be pretty balanced.
Also, you must keep in mind a few other facts as examples:
- metro vehicles from the 2cc trainset also have seating+standing capacities and their numbers are considerably higher than we have here;
- trams are slow, therefore you get a lower payment rate;
- connected with the above slowness, trams aren't adapt for longer distances;
- buses (e.g. George's Long Vehicles) may have a smaller capacity but they are in general faster and are less subject to traffic jams as they can go around different streets in a city while trams must stay on tracks;
