Such a request seems fundamentally unsound as LC kicks in some very final step currently:

T43716#469582, liangent:
The main entry point should be convertTo(), with convert() as a shortcut to use the "preferred" (= automatically guessed from request) variant. It accepts an almost-parsed HTML document (string) with -{}- markups embedded.

What module writers need to do to use LC is pretty much the same as what they have done with regular pages previously.
