Well ... if they could increase output without harming reliability, emissions, and fuel economy (among all the other factors that they keep in balance) I'm sure they would. Better engine, with no sacrifice? Awesome, who doesn't like a free lunch. But since they don't do it, I'd say its a safe bet that adding 'just a couple' psi of boost would have enough of an impact on those other things to break at least one of those 'rules'
Note, if I've gotten any facts wrong in the above, just ignore any points I made with them
