Yeah, don't believe you can set the title bar directly, its set by OS, but
if you were willing to roll your own then you could, or something simple
like a home made focus border that changes based on suspendstack and
resumestack would work. Unfortunately, pretty sure you can't affect the
stock title bar.  There is a change of color on my system, but its too
subtle for my eyes to pick up easily. Gray, and slightly lighter gray, are
all.. erm. Gray. To me.
