Reading the Wikipedia link got me thinking: One of the problems with traditional 2-stroke engines is that air-fuel mixture rushing into the cylinder will partially mix with the exhaust, leading to unburnt fuel in the exhaust. But what about a 2-stroker with direct fuel injection? Then there is only fresh air in the intake, so no hydrocarbons leave the cylinder, and if some exhaust lags behind then it's like EGR. Make it a gasser or a diesel. I'm sure someone has tried this.

What matters is where you're going, not how fast.
