If I can get into a little more details, are you thinking about
something like the following:

windowtitle "active"    "%{+r R}%t{-}"
windowtitle "general"  "%n%f %t"
windowtitle "bell"      "%{+b}%g%{-}"
windowtitle "monitor"   "%{+r}%g%{-}"
windowtitle "log"       "%g"
windowtitle "zombie"    "%g"

The '%g' would be replaced by whatever the window title format would
generally expand to. For the above example, if a window is being
monitored, then the window format will be:

  "%{+r}%n%f %t%{-}"

If the same window also sets out a bell, then it will become:

  "%{+b}%{+r}%n%f %t%{-}%{-}"

Is this close to what you have in mind? Or am I taking a completely
orthogonal path?
