I don't think there is (nor can there be) a generic way to do that.

What if you want to switch to the other window and insert some "o"s
there?  With your suggested approach, you cannot do that.

If you wanted to, you could define some `windmove-minor-mode' with a
keymap binding i, k, j, and l to the respective windmove commands, and a
binding for return and/or escape which deactivates this mode.  Then you
could bind C-o to `windmove-minor-mode'.  Using that, you could do

  C-o i j j l RET

where the RET would signal that you've finished moving around.
Alternatively, you could remap `self-insert-command' to deactivating
that mode.  In this case, any key you press except for i/j/k/l would
exit this "movement mode".

HTH,
