Konsole sends the characters to the shell as you type them, it doesn't see the whole command line. Nor does it have any idea about the state of the shell, other than basic information about the foreground process. The suggestion is in effect the same as asking for KIO support in your keyboard.
You are looking in the wrong place. The component that needs to be modified to implement your suggestion is not the terminal emulator but the shell process ( typically bash ) itself. Writing a shell, and possibly a suite of tools to go with it which can make use of the KIO framework is do-able, but that is a separate project.
