Rav Ashi and Ravina (order intentionally swapped) weren't out to collect
beraisos to produce a snapshot of halakhah pesuqah. (Unlike Rebbe and
R' Chiya in the Mishnah and Tosefta, respectively.) They quote those
lower-case-m mishnayos that furthered the discussion. There was no
attempt to be canonical, so there is no reason to explain exclusion.
