Maybe you can use a combination of "server-visit-hook" (description
says: Hook run when visiting a file for the Emacs server.) and frame
local variables. Something like:

(setq server-visit-hook 'my-server-visit-hook)
(make-variable-frame-local 'frame-title-format)

(defun my-server-visit-hook ()
  (make-local-variable 'frame-title-format)
  (setq frame-title-format "Emacsclient: %b")

The code above evaluated on the scratch buffer seems to work, but i
don't know if it breaks something else. ^__^
