So DH has been sleeping with our 2 year old for the last third of every night and wants to teach him to be more courteous at night . . . as in, not putting his legs over DH's body, kicking, etc. Given that it's harder to reason with toddlers in the middle of the night or at 4 or 5am when they somehow both sleepy and wakeful, how would you handle this?

Is it really possible to teach manners to a child to implement while they are sleeping? Eek
Anyone else have any suggestions?

Sadly after cosleeping with all three of my children -- I have found this to just be part of the joys of cosleeping with a toddler lol.  If you find something let me know, but I've never been able to break things like all the fun positions they get themselves into (mostly on top of you in some way).  I would think putting them in a separate area (their own mattress next to the bed) would help if they are ready for that step.
