First and foremost, just separating the SELinux audit messages from
other kernel log messages, i.e. don't send them to syslogd and don't put
them in /var/log/messages.  Then, if desired, separate them from DAC
audit messages.

That will require a callback by the kernel audit framework into the
security module to get the supplementary information (e.g. the security
contexts) for inclusion in the DAC audit record, as the kernel audit
framework has no direct knowledge of security contexts.
