A similar (but perhaps slightly less rube-goldbergish) option might be
a VPN that allows port forwarding and is reasonably compatible with
dynamic DNS or which offers a static IP.  Depending on how that works
it might also give you more connection stability if the cellular link
goes up and down, since the VPN software might be able to shield the
layers above from this.

Still, other than for stuff deployed in the middle of the woods
hosting services over cell links definitely is pushing the reliability
