Is it feasible to display a background image in the toolwindow's title bar?

Absolutely... in most DockRenderer implementations there is a DockContainerTitleBarActiveBackgroundFill propety that controls the background for active title bars and a related inactive property as well.

To use them in code, you can cast them to whatever renderer you are using. So for instance, in the DockForm sample, it defaults to the VS 2005 renderer so this line at the end of the constructor works:
((VisualStudio2005DockRenderer)dockManager.DockRenderer).DockContainerTitleBarActiveBackgroundFill = 
    new ImageBackgroundFill(Image.FromFile(@"C:\bg.gif"));
