Is there actually a reason for the NX-01 to be in mothballs? Considering Starfleet's losses during the Romulan War and that it still seems to be a functional ship, albeit battle damaged.
NCC-1701 is suppose to be the first Federation ship to have the name Enterprise.
To Brave the Storm indicated that the ship was too badly damaged in the Battle of Cheron to be repairable. As for why they couldn't rebuild it... well, maybe there are reasons for that. All we know is that, as BillJ said, there is no Federation ship named Enterprise until NCC-1701.
Honestly though, I'm not against there being an Enterprise between NX-01 and NCC-1701. Seems odd that the name would lay dormant for roughly eighty-five years.
