Yes, this is arguably rampant munchkinism, but I think is acceptable for the genre...
Hmm. If this shell notion worked to create the door, surely the looters would ask why not put a shell on it again and shove it through a gate or a plane shift it or what have you? I like the scope of your thinking, but a bit of back-of-the-envelope scribbling suggests this door weighs about 2700 lbs/1250 kg, and getting such a thing falling from terminal velocity with only part of its total mass subject to any magical manipulation... that seems like a plan with all kinds of ways to end in grief.
