Default Simulating random ChIP-seq peaks

Does anybody have a good way of generating random ChIP-seq peaks?
The goal is to generate random sets to assess statistical significance of overlap of real ChIP-seq peaks with different genomic features.

Simply generating random coordinates does not suffice because ChIP-seq peaks are biased for non-repetitive regions, and of course, only assembled regions of the genome, and possibly have some GC bias.

I wonder if simply excluding the repetitive and unassembled regions of the genomes would do a good job. Another possibility would be using huge amounts of input data, using mapped reads as "anchors" for randomly generated peaks?
