C-q is one thing, S-RET is another.

It *is* a great idea. All Internet chat programs have standardized on
it — Enter sends the current contents of the message entry area,
Shift+Enter adds a newline. (Some provide a user preference to swap
these.) And shell prompts and Emacs minibuffer are basically chats
with the user on one side and the interpreter on the other.
