The Model X will almost certainly fix the first problem. I really hope their 3-series competitor addresses the second without killing too many of the larger cars' virtues.
The next-gen seats fix the rear issues imo - I'm 6'1" and they're fine for me. Sorta wish a few more things were standard, but it is what it is.
I will agree on the outside dimensions being huge. I've started to use Summon from my phone from the narrow spot I have before I leave my place or pull up after I get out, but it's not a tiny car by any means.
The suspension is pretty smart about auto-raising, it's not perfect. And when some jerk with a huge truck is honking behind you while it raises, it's sub-optimal.
Summon sucked terribly two weeks ago and I think I could've been EdinA drunk and parked better, but it's improved quite a bit, just like Autopilot. That's sort of the cool thing; you get surprise features week over week.
