Question about footprints and guylines

Following up to my previous thread, I decided to go with neither of those tents and got the Suma 2 instead, since it seemed to be everything I was looking for.

The only footprint I was able to get was for the Midori 2, but the tents have the exact same floor size (4'5/3'9 x 7'4). I know the footprint should be a bit smaller than the tent, but it measures about 3-4" shorter per side... for example footprint is 3'2 for the side the tent spec is 3'9, so 7" shorter, or 3.5" away from each corner. Is this reasonable?

Also there are only guyline loops on one side, and the back of the tent (front has vestibule). I'm not sure why they didn't include a loop on the other side, but is there any reason I shouldn't sew on my own loop and use a guyline on that side as well?
