It looks to me Josh from usb-modeswitch has the technical capability
of explaining why usb-modeswitch is the way forward, and has also
implied that modem-modeswitch of udev has already been abandoned by
the upstream. Unfortunately he has just started his vacation (see the
usb-modeswitch forum), so there is not going to be immediate "backup"
from him. If you think you can express his ideas and references 
from his postings well enough, you can start the discussion on
linux-hotplug. Just try to be as polite as possible, since I don't
know what we are touching here :) But so far it seems that Red Hat's
Dan William has abandoned modem-modeswitch, and if also Josh's
argument about "it cannot be solved correctly in kernel space only" is
accepted, then usb-modeswitch is the natural way to go forward -
possibly by integrating it to udev.
