I don't think that fits.

As I see it, ls is an end user tool, i.e. output
generally goes direct to the end user.
If you would like a more progamatic way of
selecting files then `find` is more appropriate.
(find has a  -type option for example).

The shell can also be used to expand just directories.
I have the following alias for example: alias lld='ls -lUd */'
