If I understood you correctly, you want to group some index entries into 
*separate* indices, or in other words, a "specialized index". Right?

Use the "type" attribute (»Specifies the target index for this term«). Try 

 <indexterm type="variable">

Don't forget to insert the following line (generally at the end of your 

  <index type="variable"/>

All index entries marked with "type" and its value "variable" is shown 
under this index. For more information, see [1].

Hope this helps. :)
