ok i couldn't find a proper solution so i have used the
font-color black which isn't so bad i think.
enclosed is a gif doing the principle discussed above.

the header-line is thinner (3px) and i think it really suits
the header making it more compact and obtaining visual
whitespace at the same time ;)

i have moved the menu a little bit down to float with the
header. as a side-effect i imagine someone with an
apache-feather in his hands could place it descritely below
our logo and above the menu, centered.
