If you need a more factual argument here: I believe the separation between SQL engine and storage engine automatically limits what an optimizer can do to improve query plans since the deails of storage are unknown. I'm not into the details of the MySQL programming model so I may be wrong (i.e. if the storage interface also contains functionality to obtain information about access costs).
