LayerMapping does not work with MySQL because it uses the OGC spatial database tables to obtain metadata. MySQL does not support the OGC standard, and thus, does not have these tables. However, there's no technical reason that
LayerMapping cannot work on MySQL, other than that MySQL has no concept of spatial reference systems.
