It would be convenient to be able to interact with remote locations in apps that load xdg-desktop-portal-kde. E.g.:
STEPS TO REPRODUCE
1. With a recent Google Chrome version, on any website that asks to upload a file, click the Upload button
2. From KDE's portal file dialog, choose a remote location (they are already listed there anyway)
3. Choose a file from that location
The file dialog shows an error message, saying that only local files are supported
The file dialog uses kio-fuse to convert that remote path into a local FUSE path and successfully passes that to the application.
+1, would be a good idea.

Regular user here, but this would be helpful when working with a NAS on a regular basis. Its the only thing keeping me from switching to KDE as my primary DE.
Thanks for your consideration.
It occurs to me that we need to ignore scheme support when fuse is present, then compare the selected schemes with the supported schemes, reroute urls as necessary to fuse and then technically things should be amazing.
