Inter-addon ModulData

Is there a way to get the ModulData of one addon without loading the owner addons?

It is said on the ModulData Manager documentation that:
It allows each add-on to own custom data sections in ArchiCAD project files.
and
Data sections are identified uniquely by the add-on's modul ID ('MDID') and an optional modul name string.
The latter makes me think that it is possible.

EXAMPLE: Addon1_ModulData will be used on Addon2 without loading/opening Addon1.

As far as I'm aware, ArchiCAD keeps the ModulData private to the owner add-on. It makes sense – allowing one add-on direct access to another add-on's raw data could cause a mess if one add-on is updated and not the other, i.e. they interpret the data differently.
