Default Jump-4 X-boat Tenders

It's always puzzled me that X-boat Tenders have essentially been limited to local operation by their Jump 1 capability. If an X-boat needs recovered in an isolated system on the X-boat route then it would seem that recovery would need to be made by a vessel other than the Tender.

It occurs to me, however, that if you open the hangar doors of the Tender, you change it from a 1000 Ton ship to a 400 Ton ship, as the hangar is no longer enclosed by the hull. By the basic MegaTraveller and TNE Rules this means that the X-boat tender is now theoretically capable of Jump 4.

Can anyone think of a solid reason why a Tender, with the required design features + software, couldn't just open the hangar doors, program in a J-4 Jump, and safely complete the Jump?
