We already started an API with very similar goals on Tapioca project.
Take a look at:
Actually, we have implementations of this model in QT, C# and GLib,
which are tapioca-qt, tapioca-sharp and tapioca-glib (see the
project's svn) . All of them built on top of telepathy's spec.
Maybe We could combine this API with libgossip, to provide this widget
library you suggested.
