Nice!  Thanks.  Looks like Daniele requested and got the current status
a couple of months ago:

That's probably going to require that the driver creates a virtual USB
bus and device.  A basic MBIM device implementation should not be too
difficult once the mhi bus and device driver is in place.

But let's see where Qualcomm goes with this... Wrapping it all in MBIM
might not be the best choice.

Yes, they are probably all (both?) going to define their own PCIe
"modem controller".
