No. Not for stretch.

This needs at least usb-modeswitch{,-data} & pppd as udebs, and that's only to 
have the needed binaries in the d-i context.

Your best option is probably to start with a Live CD.

That's unfortunate, indeed, but it needs someone to work on that at the 
beginning of the development period, not its end (and I don't have bandwidth 
for that kind of work currently).
