Actually, they are available in experimental. A summary page of what's
going on in Debian wrt OCaml versions is available at:
http://sockmel.bononia.it/~zack/ocaml-debian-status/debian-ocaml-status.html

What is stopping a full migration to unstable is that some major OCaml
related packages haven't yet been ported by the respective author to
OCaml 3.10 and are experiencing CamlP4-related incompatibilities.

FWIW, all OCaml related packages in Debian should have a Vcs-Svn field
pointing to the subversion repository we are using for maintenance (you
can see it with "apt-get showsrc"). There you can find the current
working version of the Debian package.

Cheers.
