Doesn't the Wide Open Throttle (a.k.a. full throttle) switch achieve this
function on CIS-E cars? 

I recall reading somewhere that when the ECU sees the WOT switch close, it
goes open-loop and bumps the pressure actuator current by ~3mA, effectively
enriching the fuel mixture (slightly).

I assumed that the CIS-E "chip" mods offered by TAP, etc. just reprogrammed
the actuator current increase on WOT to a higher value.  This gets you closer
to 12.6:1 without much danger of going over-rich.
