It's not unusual. It's rife across the industry, and Cisco are probably 
slightly worse than average, for some subjective value of average.

Sometimes the SNMP MIB is present but performs horribly for various 
reasons (usually having to sort-by-oid for getnext PDUs on very large 
tables). We poll ARP/v6 neighbour by CLI script for exactly this reason.
