I simply love the brightness and tonal flexibility of my new B7, but I was wondering if there were a set of mouthpiece exercises to gain control of a piece with a much wider tip and longer facing length than you are used to.

I know blowing a G on the piece by itself gets you a good idea of the embochure tension, but is this excercise enough in itself?

Also, I have seen people make remarks along the lines of a B7 not being too open, but it's right in line with the Link 7 and the Selmer H (what Henderson's Soloist was refaced to). To me, a guy whose most open piece thus far has been a modern Soloist F, it's like trying to shoot a fly with a .45, intonation-wise.
