Suggestions for a good *visual* feedback for this would indeed be

Suggestion, sort of: Make it possible to change the colour of (or change the string in, or do whatever with) the *window caption* when copy-scrollback-mode is in effect.

(I usually use a blue window caption, but it'd be lovely if I could make is so that it was green whenever copy-scrollback-mode was in effect. The reason is that I use scrollback pretty extensively, looking for logged data in big terminal print-outs. And sometimes when I'm back from getting a cup of coffe, I sort of forget that the window is in copy-scrollback-mode, so I start typing -- and the window exits copy-scroll-back-mode, and I realize that I just lost the valuable scrolling position that I had spent ten minutes searching for.. Not sure this sounds like an obscure use case.. But I would love it if I could configure some visual feedback for when being in copy-scroll-back-mode.)
