The idea is very interesting, perhaps it's possible to be realized by using 
FUSE. The following paths may be used:

It will provide abstraction from network layer of the OS and support of custom 
programs which  doesn't know anything about KIO.

Copying of a file into the temporary directory is sometimes problematical. 
For instance, I'd like do watch a film or another large file, such action will
lead to copying of the whole file to temp directory, that can take very long 
time. Using of the suggested method may provide using of the file data 
without copying whole file on your box, such as usual mounting smb(or other 
file share) into local directory tree.

Maybe anyone can do this? This must be very useful.
