I don't know that there is any stated, formal or explicit reason why there isn't one, but NetView itself has no need of a MIB documenting its traps.  They are already defined in trapd.conf and well documented in the Admin Guide appendix (which is being updated in 7.1.4).  

To create such a MIB, and keep it accurate,  would require development resources, and those would have to be approved by IBM management.  To sell management on that  idea would mean having to sell them on the idea that NetView should become an agent to another vendor's management system.  

Quite frankly, there's no way that I can imagine that anyone could do that internally.  So if you think there is a need for such a thing, and you think you can provide a business justification for it, then I encourage you to open an enhancement request through your marketing rep or through a call to support.  Customers might be able to drive such a requirement but no one else could.

No.  There is no such MIB.
