No, you cannot do that because both hmp_object_add and qmp_object_add
take a QDict.  But hmp_object_add's qdict has strings, while
qmp_object_add has the right types (e.g. integer for integer properties).

It is not entirely clear, but actually the structure is the same as
regular commands that use code generation.

The usual code path is

        hmp_cont          qmp_marshal_input_cont
                \        /

Here it is

  hmp_object_add          qmp_object_add
                \        /

So the current structure is fine.
