I'd say, let's try to make a command that inserts a single character, 
like C-q does, and if that works, we could make a minor mode.

But if you want to do it differently, please go ahead.  What I didn't 
quite like in your original suggestion was the need to edit in a separate 
buffer/window.  I would like to have a way to insert characters visually 
without switching buffers or windows (as far as the user is concerned; 
behind the scenes, you can switch buffers as you wish, of course).  Such 
an insertion would be slow, but if it isn't too slow, I think it's a more 
pleasant way of input.
