No matter what Bernie says, it doesnt make sense to keep moving the goal posts, look for more economical options that cost more to develop. At the end of the day in the eighties they were using turbos and then they went to normallly aspirated. Why did they do that? Becasue turbo engines became to powerfull. How will they actually monitor the power output acurately and control it in the present era with advanced ecu technology. Makes me laugh the whole topic, to think how the engine makers could find loopholes and exploit boundareis. In short an engines suposed to be limited to 750bhp odd could suddenly become a 1200 bhp monster(thats exageration maybe but even another 15 would help) down the Straight with out anybody being the wiser, obviously the driver would have to mask it but it certainly wouldnt be impossible to cheat-electronically.
