[*] The diagonal door supports were put there because those doors are really big and there's 2 of them in a major load-bearing structural wall. I think IRL that you'd need something like them in place to keep the structure stable and stop the door beamss from buckling.
Then in this case, I think I might know how you can replace the diagonal supports and make the doors "cleaner". In CP_granary, Valve added support rings on the large girders near the secondary control points at each side of the map to hold them upright. Perhaps you could add something similar to those on the door frames to make them look like the doors are being stabilized by the walls. Be sure to properly clip the door frames if you go ahead with this.
