One reason might be because the MySQL manual has LOCK TABLES permissions
classified as a "server administration" permission, alongside stuff like
SHUTDOWN and SUPER which you would never want to give a "peon" user:
CREATE TEMPORARY TABLES has this classification as well, although it seems like
most support requests for 4.7 have been about hosts not providing LOCK TABLES
