I think ideallly this would be done in the existing classes. However, there is 
currently a kind of freeze for features in kdelibs so you might have to work 
on that in a subclass of your own for the time being.

But hopefully in a way that results in this extended functionality being part 
of the respective classes in KDE frameworks 5.
