There are some others, like the bridge having to be on top of the ship as opposed to buried deep inside of it like any sane person would do.
Canon explanation is each nacelle has two warp coils, giving the Galaxy-X an even number of warp coils (6) in three nacelles.

That being said, 'single nacelle' ships could have a nacelle with two warp coils in them, thereby satisfying the 'even number of coils' rule.
