Given that the $NWQMISTATUS reply is not bearer-specific (reports
overall status of the modem), I was thinking in moving the periodic
connectivity check to MMIfaceModem instead, and plug it in using the
same logic as e.g. the signal quality check. In that way, other
implementations (e.g. Samsung) could benefit from the same generic
timeout handling logic. What do you think?

Is it useful to other implementations? I consider the periodic connectivity check a hack to work around Novatel's fairly broken firmware and complete lack of unsolicited notifications. If other modems are also bad at this, that seems fine, but I'd like to resist generalizing features when there's really only one instance of the problem.
