how often do people look at the title bar? NEVER
i hardly ever notice it...
people usually notice the content of the window, not the titlebar.

so it wouldnt serve the purpose of being noticed would it? even if it
was in a different color the chances are that it would never get noticed.

and a scrolling/animated ticker would be distracting/irritating...
