"Don't forget that each hull will probably need one or more "cab depots" where several cabs can be tucked out of the way, facilitating both #2 and #3 above.

Hmm, I may actually have seen something like this on blueprints or a cutaway at some point in the last 40 years."
You might want to take a look at this thread from not too long ago.

I think turbo lift cab depots Franz Joseph style (other than those for repair and maintenance) would be a waste of space, better to aim for a system with circulating cabs with as little dead ends as possible.
