Why not? Anyway, you're a bit late with this demand.
There are svnadmin list-dblogs and list-unused-dblogs (BDB-only),
there is hotcopy --incremental which only works on FSFS, some
subcommands take a --memory-cache-size option which is FSFS-specific.
I didn't look for more examples.

I think it's better to keep admin-facing user interfaces focused
on the existing admin tools. In my experience, even experienced
admins often don't know off-hand whether to use svnadmin or svnlook.

Why should people suddenly care about the backend a repository is
using if they just want to see some repository filesystem stats?

Also, stuff in tools/ is often not packaged by packagers, and ends
up missing on most installations even though it would be useful.

svn-bench is another such example. We should just move this into
'svn' as far as I'm concerned.
