That's interesting! What about a "viewer window" that can fed with the 
viewer from composite, the 3D viewport (from camera) or individual 
footage? They could be used even as layers (for instance, the 3D view 
from camera on top of a compositing viewer, or the composite over an 
imported footage).
Having masks, tracking and node widgets on top of that would be 
incredibly flexible.

It's also just an idea, but perhaps an idea that is worth to explore and 
draft, at least to see if there are any significant issues.
