Duh. Sorry about that. I was getting "unknown command" errors. I'll try to be a bit more investigative in the future.

Actually it's already implemented. Look a commands.lst and normal/dyncmd.c

<commandname>:  <modulename>.mod [, <modulename>.mod ...]


multiboot:      multiboot.mod
linux:          linux.mod

(Obviously, we could also have the convention of trying to load
<commandname>.mod, but having an explicit mapping would remove the overhead
of trying to find a module that doesn't exist, and loading multiple modules
may not be needed as well).
