Connect SmartTV to internet using HDMI 1.4 to a PC?

I have a "WiFi-Ready" SmartTV
(meaning it doesn't have a built-in wireless adapter, but has USB ports for one and ethernet port) and I'm looking to avoid the additional adapter by utilizing the fact that it is HDMI 1.4 compliant and my computer is 3 feet away with a decent internet connection. I have the appropriate HDMI /w Ethernet cable but don't know if this is something that was at all intended when the standard was put together.

I know that probably my best bet is to use an actual ethernet cable to set up some kind of Internet Connection Sharing between my PC and the TV, but I wanted to see if I can use some of that new technology to my benefit and less cable wiring.
