Oh please no; don't do that.

If you can run a script, you could source the  modemmanager.proto file and then:

# Load connected bearer information
bearerpath=$(modemmanager_get_bearer "${device}")
bearerstatus=$(/usr/bin/mmcli --bearer "${bearerpath}")

being ${device} the sysfs path configured for the modem

The bearerstatus variable will say connected/disconnected, and if
disconnected, you can ifup the interface yourself
