comment Using javascript to apply “noindex” to get SharePoint to avoid crawling certain content
Marking this as the answer since it most closely addresses my question in the title. For the underlying problem, I actually wound up using the solution that I pointed out in "Update 2"; here's another link to the blog post.

Looks like that might work with FAST Search Server though, per this response to another question: sharepoint.stackexchange.com/a/46800/2995

I wish adding the noindex class to a container div would do the trick, but I guess the SharePoint team felt like that would be too easy or something :)

The part of your answer about "dispaly:none" is very interesting though... I might be able to hide the nav elements by default and use javascript to reveal them to normal users. I'll have to test out.

I actually used the class operator intentionally as we have 3 generated navigation elements on each page (top, left, and bottom). I was able to verify that the javascript was correct by looking at the page in the browser.

comment Using javascript to apply “noindex” to get SharePoint to avoid crawling certain content
Unfortunately, SharePoint requires "noindex" to be on each nested div. It's a good thought, and a bit frustrating that it doesn't work that way. However, I've verified this myself, and this link also refers to it: blogs.msdn.com/b/markarend/archive/2010/06/07/…

That sounds promising. I'm not sure when I'll get to try this out myself, but I'll mark this as the answer whenever I'm able to confirm it.
