I guess it would not be that complicated to make the folder view replace its 
contents with that of a new folder on click, but there is currently no way to 
navigate "up".

You could start discussing the idea on forums.kde.org, in the Brainstorm 

One alternative that you could try is to use a separate activity for your 

I.e. instead of switching to the desktop you would switch activity, so only 
the filemanagers you had been using would be open.
Once you're done you would switch back to the main activity.

I use a similar workflow to switch between the main/work activity and 
video/music playing.
A simple Windows+Tab "hides" all applications and shows the media players, 
another Window+Tab and I am back.
