All the direct injected diesels I've worked on were designed that way, I believe even the 71-Series Detroits that hark from the 1930s. Sure makes the head look more simple. In conjunction with combustion chamber design, a lot of the intake work now being done is with dual runners and mixture valves that operate to affect airflow. I understand it helps with emissions and power both.
