That is not to say that I haven't tweaked those plans in various ways

I've done that as well - particularly cockpit size and shape.

As AVO said:
The cockpit rim will be sized for me to lean backwards and stick my feet out. Not longer, not shorter.

For me (since I seem to get a bit less flexible each year), definitely not shorter and usually a bit longer! (NDK Romany size works for me).
