I think the reason this variation hasn't been repeated often, is that indeed Black gets to little compensation.
Black in later years preferred either 12....b4 or 12 .... d5,
while strong GM's like Ivanchuck and Onischuk diverged on the 11th move with 11...Na5 with seems sufficient for a balanced game.

Game 3 Kasparov v Short 1993

Game 3 of this match is mentioned on page 34 of the October 2009 UK Chess magazine. The query is why Kasparov didn't try to win a pawn by 13 axb5 axb5 14 Qb3  in the anti-Marshall line 1 e4 e5 2 Nf3 Nc6 3 Bb5 a6 4 Ba4 Nf6 5 0-0 Be7 6 Re1 b5 7  Bb3 0-0 8 a4 Bb7 9 d3 Re8 10 Nbd2 Bf8 11 c3 h6 12 Ba2 d6 . Instead Kasparov preferred to remove the dark squared Bishop with Nh4, Ng6 and Nxf8.

The game has been repeated just once in Jakovenko - Tomashevsky Moscow 2005 in which Black logically sacrificed the pawn for open lines on the queenside with Qd7 and Rae8. Jakovenko did win eventually though.
