Question Convert old Passenger Sensor Mat to a Bypass Box?

I have an 06 320d, in which the passenger sensor mat has been flexed too much over the years and has either a micro crack or a short. My car is German, so it is not covered by the USA recall. I found a used replacement on ebay which I'll be installing soon (may do a DIY for you guys). My only fear is that the used sensor mat will also develop a crack or a short. Is it possible to modify my old sensor mat and re-purpose it as a bypass unit to keep the airbag on at all time?

Before you respond with "Why didn't you just buy a bypass unit on amazon or ebay and be done with it?" I am only living in Germany for another year, and I'll need to sell this car at that time. I cannot (in good conscience) sell this car to someone with a bypass unit installed, even if I disclose that to them...because they could forget or sell it to someone else, and they could put their kid/childseat in the front seat and kill them.

Should just unplug and decode.
It will have the airbag enabled.
