You should look harder. ;-) There should be plenty of options out there. The question is whether to trust a boneyard tranny, or to spring for a rebuilt unit. It all kind of depends on what your vehicle is worth, and your future plans for it. A rebuilt transmission tends to cost more than the cost of a typical '01 MDX, but if your vehicle is in great shape and/or has lots of sentimental value, the formula could be different.

Just out of curiosity, how did you determine that the tranny needs to be swapped? If it's a dealership estimate / diagnosis, keep in mind it's the ONLY diagnosis they do on auto trannies. Most folks on this forum have been able to fix transmission problems without swapping them out.

I had a shop replace my 2002 with a JDM 2002 transmission; worked fine, so I don't see why not if they are both 01'

Sorry I do not know all the details the shop did to make it work, they said it was a simple R&R.
