You can check out a pull request we had recently around this same request with regard to supporting arm64 which has a lot of information and feedback from the Fabric maintainers: https://github.com/hyperledger/fabric/pull/1086
I think Gari says it best: https://github.com/hyperledger/fabric/pull/1086#issuecomment-615883076
The gist of it is, there haven't been a lot of requests for this, and there is more than just providing the images and binaries. In particular, project contributors and maintainers have to commit to fixing any code that may not work on MIPS. Just publishing the images and binaries isn't enough, without a strong commitment from contributors who have a history of contributing to fabric, moving forward with this request is difficult. Providing official artifacts and support for maintaining the code on MIPS is a much much larger undertaking than most realize.
That being said, major requests like this go through an RFC process that is documented here: https://github.com/hyperledger/fabric-rfcs
