Doing this might be simpler... just rework
purple_got_protocol_handler_uri() to be called first by gtkhtml and if
the signal is not absorbed by a signal handler, then fall back to UI
specific external handling such as is done with

At this point, each plugin would be tasked with figuring out whether the
URI belongs to it instead of having libpurple make the decision, which
is how it works presently for the external invocation.

This would be more consistent with current behavior.
