Externally mounted craft and drop tanks. I'd say lose half the hardpoints for civilian ships. Military ships might get away with a system of structural bracing to avoid the loss of hardpoints but probably at the cost of lost volume.

Large hatches such as for small craft bays and cargo holds. I'd say 1 hardpoint lost per such feature on civilian ships. And again military ships could avoid the loss of hardpoints with added structural bracing.

Two very good ideas.
