Default How many control panels is too many?

ACS ships require a control panel for every "mechanism" and some specific cases are given in the rules. For example, Life Support. This makes sense and one can assume this might also control floor grav plates.

But what about anti-hijacking controls? Accesses (air locks) can be assumed to be remotely locked and would require a panel.

Interior bulkhead doors aren't defined at all but iris valves should be remotely lockable. I guess you can assume that each compartment, crew accommodation, and passenger accommodation includes bulkhead doors as needed. Should each of these have a separate control panel?

This yields a ton of control panels, even on smaller ships. But it makes sense that the Bridge (a compartment) should have a control panel for access.

Would you create all these control panels for one of your designs?
