To request a new feature, could you do that via https://bugs.kde.org/ 
Below the 'Platform' selection. you'll see 'normal'  From the drop-down, 
select 'wishlist'.

I'm not familiar with Gnucash, but does it have the capability to export 
in CSV format?  If so you could import via the CSV plugin, which allows 
copying the payee to the memo field.  It is not perhaps your preferred 
route, but at the moment there is a shortfall of developer time, and it 
may help in the mean-time.
