I think the appearance of the insertion point is controlled by the OS. You 
could submit a report to see if it is possible to change it. That may be 
allowed on some platforms.

If you are talking about mobile devices, I've seen that LC fields sometimes 
don't display an insertion point at all, and show very erratic behavior 
during text entry. The solution is to use a native field, but I'm not sure 
the insertion point can be altered there either. It wouldn't hurt to submit 
a feature request though.
