adding a 3.5oz tank hardly defeats the purpose of a pistol unless its purely a sidearm.
it eliminates the issue with reloading 12grams completely - all you have to worry about is paint, it is still compact light weight and holsterable.
a hopper? well you have to load paint somehow, I don't think a mini hopper is that much of a problem relative to a 10 round spring tube. I don't plan on using one but I am eliminating the 12grams.
Each to there own. But a lot of the pistols out there are big already. Not quite full size markers, but not a heck of a lot smaller, either. Adding a hopper, even a pocket one, makes them pretty much the same size as a barebones Spyder or similar clone with a smaller barrel.
Especially double stacked pistols like the Overlord. Adding a hopper also means that you can't turn the marker upside down, easily jam it around corners or through cracks in your bunker, which is one of the reasons I love pistols.
As an aside, I'd put a remote on before a tank. Would help maintain the balance a bit more.
Either way, Best of luck.
