I don't think this is possible without modifying Emacs's C source code.
However, you might find the following useful or adaptable to your

(defun srb-display-mode-line-string(&optional arg)
  "Display the unpropertized mode-line string in the echo area.
With prefix argument ARG, insert it at point in the current buffer."
  (interactive "P")
  (let ((mode-line-string
         (eval-expression '(format-mode-line mode-line-format 0))))
    (and arg (insert mode-line-string))))
(global-set-key "\C-cf" 'srb-display-mode-line-string)
