blur together to one. On first sight, I wondered if this is meant to be
a sunken in look with light on the outer edge and had to view closer to
see it is not.

To me it seems problematic that titlebar and menubar appear as one for
focused windows, but fall apart due to titlebar transparency for
unfocused windows. You could perhaps use an alpha gradient or do away
with the transparency.
