I wouldn’t be surprised if the manufacturer’s maintenance procedures mandate the closure of all doors and hatches when the aircraft is under tow.

I can't speak for the biggest 'bus, but the smaller Airbuses have different speed limits for cargo/pax doors open and closed. So it certainly permitted on some types.
