Actually, the light color of the header-line is identical to the color
of the menus and the toolbar.  To me, this makes the header line
appear as a part of the frame.

I would prefer that the header line behaves like the mode line in that
it has the same color for a selected window.  If people don't like
this idea, it still may be a good idea to offer users the opportunity
to do this.  As is stands now, there are two standard faces for the
mode line (`mode-line' and `mode-line-inactive') and just one face for
the header line (`header-line').  We could introduce the face
`header-line-inactive' and use it to color the header line of
non-selected windows and use `header-line' for selected windows only.
