MathOverflow is (among other things) intended to be a repository/clearinghouse for certain information not easily found elsewhere. If the area to be surveyed is narrow enough, it may be harder to find such a paper. However, many people have given their opinions online on good resources for various areas, and those online sources should be probed first before attempting such a question here.
I reviewed my answer to "Is this a known/interesting result?"-type questions . I would tweak it to indicate what searches you have done, and why they came up short. Even though the flow there talks about a specific result, I recommend trying to adopt the flow toward your question. When you come to what it is you really want and what you have tried, write that down, then stop. Then wait. Then look at the question and see what web search you could try to answer it.
After a few iterations of the above, you will either have an answer, or you will have a short but reasonable length (greater than 3) list of attempts and reasons why they failed. That should refine your question to exactly the kind of survey you want as well as the kind of survey you will accept. If you ask a question that is looking for a specific enough survey AND contribute at the same time information which might be helpful to others but won't help you (because of your clearly explained and specific requirements), you will have done a service to the MathOverflow community. You may even be rewarded with a link to the survey you want.
Bonus: if you offer to review a survey that is being drafted (or otherwise assist with such a draft), you may help a current author complete the survey you want to read.
