this is perhaps the right question worded the wrong way.. =) 

since flipping colours not only introduces horrible flicker (that won't be 
easy if at all even possible to eliminate perfectly) and makes it harder to 
read/view non-focussed windows (which should still be perfectly readable, 
think of the multi-document use case), it really isn't an option for the 
default mode. so perhaps the question really is: "since we can't do it this 
way, what other ideas can we come up with?" by dissallowing the option 
completely, i'm sure we'll (be forced to) come up good alternatives.

some that occur to me right now:

- changing the colours of the window decoration buttons / text
- changing the shape of the window decoration buttons / text
- changing the appearance of the window decoration, even if this means that 
non-focussed windows don't have a perfectly seamless border between deco and 
contents; e.g. perhaps the title bar could be blurred, lightened, 
darkenned ...?

and since those occurred to me in the 30s i've spent thinking about it, i'll 
bet there are some actually good ideas to be had ;)
