. . . Stephen Whitfield & Gene Roddenberry were conclusive in "The Making of Star Trek" in '68. They specified multiple six-man transporter rooms, as well as 22-man and cargo facilities as well.
Specifically:
There are eleven personnel and cargo transporter stations aboard the vessel. Four are the familiar main operational stations, two are cargo transporters, five are emergency personnel transporters which can handle twenty-two people each but involve a risk factor at such power loads and are limited to use in ship-abandoning emergencies.
And that's where Franz Joseph got the number and types of transporter for the blueprints.

May have been the losing side. Still not convinced it was the wrong one.
