No, but it sounds like a wonderful idea whose time has come (thanks to the internet tools now readily available and the relatively low cost of data storage).
Perhaps anonymity could be an option (just like LT), but at least some general geographic location would seem necessary. Or, maybe not. I guess it all depends on the purpose(s) of the database.
It is called the Ethiopian Manuscript Imaging Project (EMIP). It is run by Professor Steve Delamarter and was begun in 2005. Its mission to help preserve images of Ethiopian manuscripts and make them available for scholarly study.
The first two publications from this project initiate the Ethiopic Manuscripts, Texts, and Studies series.

Ethiopian Scribal Practice 1: Plates for the Catalogue of the Ethiopic Manuscript Imaging Project by Steve Delamarter and Melaku Terefe
Pickwick Publications (June 2009), Paperback, 208 pages
This volume ilustrates the manuscripts and scrolls published in the catalog along with additional commentary about the image and the manuscripts.
Another equally important component to the EMIP is to make images of the manuscripts avaible on-line. They are presented in their entirety with limited commentary and descriptions at the EMIP (Ethiopian Manuscript Imaging Project) which is part of the Vivarium (on-line digital image database) from St. John's University.
