I think the API facilities we have for this are the -n arguments to
_get_comp_words_by_ref and _init_completion.  I don't claim to
understand anywhere near all there is to it, but we additionally have
__ltrim_colon_completions which is used in a few completions; not sure
if we'd need something like that for other things besides colons that
get possibly removed from COMP_WORDBREAKS by whatever means.
