At the time the 787 seat width was announced, the Qantas Dreamliner microsite specified that the width would be 17.4" (with no disclaimers).

The 787 isn't "designed" for 9 across at all. The majority of airlines (all but JL now) have decided to install 9 across instead of the 8 across the aircraft was designed for.
