How big Super Sonic Business Jet is needed?

Dassault made an estimate late last year:

Current technology suggests such an aircraft would have a mtow of well over 100,000 pounds and a carbon footprint around four to five times that of a subsonic aircraft comparable in weight and size
Falcon 7x?
Falcon 7X cabin, IIRC is:
somewhat narrower than Bombardier Challenger/CRJ, and Concorde
somewhat wider than Gulfstream II...V, and wider than ERJ/Legacy.

The 7X cabin is far shorter than Concorde, and shorter than Gulfstream V or Bombardier Global.

How exactly does Falcon 7X cabin length compare against Embraer Legacy?

Falcon 7X cabin is 39.1 ft long versus 49.8 ft cabin length for the Legacy 600.

Cabin dimensions for height, width, length:
Falcon 7X: 6.2' 7.7' 39.1'
EMB Legacy 600: 6.0' 6.9' 49.8'

Aerion SSBJ cabin (6,5 wide) is smaller than Dassault 7X cabin (7,7 wide).

Does it mean Dassault is saying Aerion is too small?
