You can get the original command bound to RET from
`current-local-map' or `current-global-map'.

But maybe `*-command-hook' or `*-change-functions' are a
more clean solution.

Do you plan do add semantics completion feature to your
package?  I think your UI is far better than semantics
tooltip or completion buffer UI.
