Someone correct me if I'm wrong but I don't believe that this is possible I'm afraid.

Firstly cross window drag and drop is only supported in certain browsers (i.e. Safari).

Secondly, for JQuery drag something it has to have the draggable method called on it - you're only going to be able to do this on pages you control and can load Jquery on I'm afraid (i.e. yahoo.com is a no go). There might be a use the select event to trigger the calling of the draggable method on whatever was selected, but I doubt it would be fool proof.
