We (Digital) have implemented a "chassis MIB" in our DEChub900 product.
The MIB is similar a very early draft presented by the IETF Chassis MIB
Working Group (a Cabletron/Synoptics/Hughes proposal).

Our chassis MIB has a slot group, entity group, segment groups, power
source group, power sink group, environmental group, and load group.
The segment group is very product specific.  The slot and entity groups
are similar to what other hub vendors have implemented.  Standardizing on 
objects which allow backplane LAN-hopping, port-switching, etc. seems to 
me to be very difficult.
