The actual Boeing's configuration for a (more) conventionally looking transonic was totally different, like a waisted 777...
 
And here is the missing link between Sukhoi-derived Boeing SST designs and the Sonic Cruiser.

Damn plagiarists! =) So, this is radically mutated Su-33
 
Waisted B-777 from the Flight mentioned patent.

It's not so simple to have a wide-body and a transonic too.... ::) That's why they went to the rear placed wing, shifting the area ruled zone AFT the main cabin.
