Khan may have been without compassion, but I don't think he was designed that way, not on purpose. Genetic enhancement was intended to improve the human race. The supermen spawned from it were an accident, Khan included. The scientists responsible realized too late the severity of their mistake. Genetic engineering was eventually outlawed in the Federation to prevent men like Khan from coming into existence.
