Thanks once more for your help.
You pointed me in the right direction.

Not sure if it can be done easier, but what I roughly do now is:

top_frame = page.mainFrame()
my_qt_object = MyQtObject()
top_frame.addToJavaScriptWindowObject("pyObj", my_qt_object)
field = top_frame.findFirstElement(path)

js_inject_after = """{
    var that = this;
    var prev_action = this.%(evt)s;
    if (prev_action == null){
        prev_action = function(){};
    this.%(evt)s = function(){

prms = dict(
    action=""" pyObj.action(that.id+ "clicked"); """

field.evaluateJavaScript(js_inject_after % prms)
