I'm not saying you are wrong here...but from what I've read on Serekhs, etc. there are two doors represented in the Palace facade. One is always closed, and one is always open. This represents the enclosed tomb where the King's spirit, (Ka) resides, (closed door) and the offering room where the living come and make offerings to the king's spirit. There are many Pre and early Dynastic Tombs that were built in this 2-room manner, (or 'style' if you prefer).
(Maybe we are talking about 2 different things here, 'gates', and 'doors'.)

THE Cartouche in Campbell's Chamber IS Authentic, as are ALL other RC's Glyphs, until proven otherwise.
