Not an answer for your question, but this piece of code from grml zsh
config may interest you:


# add a command line to the shells history without executing it
commit-to-history () {
	print -s ${(z)BUFFER}
	zle send-break
zle -N commit-to-history
bindkey -M viins "^x^h" commit-to-history
bindkey -M emacs "^x^h" commit-to-history


With this piece of code in your zshrc, you could press C-x C-h to
commit your current command to history without executing it.
