Yeah, really. But then I thought about it a little bit and realized it wouldn't be that hard to do. All you need is a bit of moveable real estate on the cylinder head side of the combustion chamber. Move it further into the chamber to increase compression ratio, and move it out of the combustion chamber to reduce it. It can't be a flat plate, it needs to have sides; make it round and you have a "puck".
