Instruction mix profiles might be gathered in order to get a rough idea about which instructions are most important to the performance of a workload. Considering that pipelined CPUs have been the norm for decades, and hyperthreads have been in and out of favor for years also, references which ignore those characteristics don't appear very useful.
Did you read in the AVX forum about the free Intel tools for collecting instruction mix?
