I don't care what Jeffries said in later years, the shipboard conventions depicted in Star Trek were intended to be something the WWII-veteran tv-viewing public could understand and relate to. Space on board ship was at a premium (let alone on s SPACE SHIP). They wouldn't dick around with odd-shaped corridors for the hell of it.
"shall not be infringed" is naturally open to infringements of all kinds, because shut up and think of the children.
