In the panel; yes. Using a transparent png works really well. These days all
panel apps behave quite well with transparent panels.

Window border: Yes and no. I don't know if Compiz can do blur at an
acceptable performance. Each time I've enabled blur in the past it has
crippled the performance. Maybe it has changed, but I doubt it.

I am not sure if transparent widgets are possible. The latest gtk+ release
added widget-level composition, but afaik no engine is using it (or if that
is even possible), and I don't know how viable it is. Maybe some hacker with
a little time on their hands should do a quick dirty hack to test this out.
It is really not that hard to hack up Murrine or some other engine[1].
Unfortunately I have no time atm.
