The engine developers can themselves decide which status variables they
export. In this case the InnoDB & XtraDB developers has decide it's
not critical to show the above variables to the end user.
In MySQL 5.5 (and MariaDB 5.5) we will have a new interface that
allows one easily monitor mutex usage.
If you want something before that, you can alway submit a patch for
XtraDB about adding the variables you deem critical to show status.
