Eh, in order to build an engine to handle the elevated compression and to run on compression ignition it has to be much heavier/ thicker cylinder block/ etc.

That tends to hurt the performance and cost far more as compared to a gasoline engine. Never mind the fact that the fuel also costs significantly more per gallon.

I love how most of the new fuel saving techniques being used in gas engines are adaptations of things that diesels have either always done or been doing for years.

direct injection and undersizing with a turbo being the most prime examples.
In fact Mazda's going the other way adapting gasoline engine technology to a diesel to try and build the lowest compression modern diesel at 14.1 compression.

The key enablers of being able to run a gasoline engine at 12:1 compression on 87 octane fuel are variable valve timing, direct gasoline fuel injection and modern electronic controls.

They have had gasoline engines running at 12:1 or greater in the past, but it absolutely required high octane fuels to prevent detonation/ auto ignition. The liquid fuel injection directly into the chamber has a cooling effect on the compressed air charge during the phase change.

Turbo diesel engines tend to make more torque, but they don't tend to rev as well, nor make as much power as an equivalent displacement gasoline engine.
