Uh, what? \e doesn't send anything to the server, it just edits the query buffer locally.
I could interpret your request as being that ECHO_HIDDEN causes "hidden" commands to be shoved into the command history (whence they could be recalled and edited) as well as being echoed. While I can see some use-case for that, I think it'd more usually be an annoyance and/or break cases that work today. If we decide that's a useful feature, I'd vote for leaving ECHO_HIDDEN alone and inventing a separate variable to enable it (HISTORY_HIDDEN, or some such?).
