Do filters support accessing properties of some interfaces?

No and it is not a trivial thing as the interface status may change independently on the routes so the routes may need reimport on interface status change.

Anyway, in near future, the roa checks should be fixed in exactly this way, reimporting routes as roa changes. Then it should be an easy change to do. Please revive this thread after we announce the fixed ROA handling. I suppose it will happen in several months.
