Could you please report this wish to kate developers? They could implement
the necessary API for kde4.

... Another option is to use text buffers as a source of code instead of plain
files somewhere in kdevelop core. On user request we can modify the buffer
(add asm lines)  then rely on kate to show expansion mark. In this case asm 
code will be shown exactly as you want. You'll never see the expansion mark
near the text, another interface (popup menu?) should be used then.

Provides but does not implement ;)
