Oh, this request is much older. It's been in the early TODOs, so it's
probably around for six or seven years.

Well, I doubt that black is useful at all and it would certainly look
ugly. But I have thought about it more and I think I see a way to
implement darkening based on your approach of drawing the outside area
in black. So your change would probably be a start regardless of what
I said earlier.
In order to undraw the black you've drawn on top of the image display,
you will have to expose that area using gimp_display_shell_expose_area().
