I'm with you on that.
I ended up with a Cervantes Crossover II guitar, which has the cutaway, but the classical fretboard and width. Here's a pic:

At the time, Cervantes was the only one I found that provided those specs. I'm sure there are more now.
As far reaching the upper frets go on your Cordoba:
Try dipping your left shoulder as you ready yourself to play those notes. It should help with the reach and accuracy. That's what the classical players do.
I agree that elevated fingerboards have minimal effect, but together with a dipped shoulder should make things even easier.
But, nothing beats a cutaway as far as I'm concerned.
