I can see a lot of good reasons for an abstract-and-simple rule saying there's a penalty for shooting if the target is on the other side of a doorway, assuming the door is of typical width (e.g. less than 120 cm).

For added detail, differentiate the penalty according to weapon, with a bigger penalty to bows than to crossbows.
