This already exists; see contrib/mythnotify.

You can configure the geometry of MythTV to be less than full screen,
and use another X program to display whatever you like in that area.
The only thing missing is the ability to bind keys to arbitrary
external scripts; I believe there's already been discussion of
extending the "User Job" functionality to do this sort of thing.

Feature requests not accompanied by code belong on the users list.
