There is the package tramp-theme in GNU ELPA. With its default values,
it decorates modelines depending on whether the buffer is remote or not,
it shows the remote hostname, and alike. Other customizations (buffer
colors, fringe colors, etc) are possible. Could be easily extended for
frame titles.

(Advertisement alert: I'm the author of that package.)

Best regards, Michael.
