No, there's no way. Actually, you cannot change the window titles with
pure Gtk themes, unless you have a full GNOME theme which includes the
appropriate Metacity/Mutter settings.

Openbox doesn't use any Gtk settings, it's completely independent from
it. The only graphical way to change the Openbox appearance is OBconf.
But it's possible to integrate themes directly into a GNOME theme
package because both the Gtk and Openbox stuff reside in ~/.themes.
