I wonder if there is a way to isolate the chat into its own window, that
could assure DOM/context separation from the Google or Facebook chat
window, but still read/write into their chat stream.

Imagine a Firebug like frame/pane that opens from the bottom of your
browser, and it is in this that you have your OTR chat. Only ciphertext
is ever passed in/out of the Google/Facebook DOM.
