This week's book giveaway is in the Agile and Other Processes forum. We're giving away four copies of Real-World Software Development: A Project-Driven Guide to Fundamentals in Java and have Dr. Raoul-Gabriel Urma & Richard Warburton on-line! See this thread for details.
Like other subjects, new forums are created only as warranted by the amount of traffic generated for that subject. If you can identify a large number of posts related to a particular topic, it can be considered for a new forum.

Sure. We have no objection to having any forum at all, Sun related or not. Java related or not.
But we wont create a forum unless it is going to have traffic. So when we see substantial posts regarding MQ Series or about certification for MQ Series then we will look at what sort of forum works best for them.
Searching in the IBM/Websphere forum for "MQ Series" I get a grand total of 105 matches, and only 5 of them this year.
The same search in "Product and Other Certification" returns 12 matches - 1 this year (from back in January).
As Bear mentioned, we need to see posts before we create a forum. Right now I am not seeing posts.
Perhaps we are just not seeing the true interest - would you care to make a case (by showing us the posts on this subject)?

Our experience in the past has been that creating a forum on a specific topic doesn't really have a significant effect on how many posts on that topic we get. At least it looks that way from my point of view...
