Is it possible to create a link that opens my Illustrator CEP plugin panel?

I have a link that when is clicked in a browser/email client, opens Illustrator (if not already open), and opens my CEP plugin's panel, and calls a callback with some argument.

 

Something like:

adobe-illustrator://my-plugin-id/?parameter=something

 

The closest thing I've found is:

https://adobexdplatform.com/plugin-docs/distribution/how-to-create-deep-links.html

 

But it talks about using a link to install the plugin.

If at all, you have to create the relevant additional bit to even register the relevant pseudo-protocols/ MIME types beforehand, meaning you need to create a chrome:// or mozilla:// snippet/ applet first and inform the user that this is required to be installed and allowed. Still, even then it may become an annoyance and security issue because the browsers or mail clients may ask you every time if you actually want to open the link or block it right away.
