You probably want to ask on gtk-devel-list and gnome-shell-list.

Wayland interfaces need to be implemented by the compositor, and typically
not piecemeal. That KDE interface seems to be a private interface shared
between Plasma and kwin, like the gtk_shell interface is a private
interface between GTK and GNOME Shell; typically what happens is that
toolkit and compositor developers iterate over their requirements and then
propose the addition of functionality to the xdg_shell shared interface.

You could ask the gnome-shell developers to expose a similar functionality
in the gtk_shell interface, and then GTK would be able to consume it; but
that requires coordination between GNOME Shell and GTK releases.
