As someone that has been rear-ended more time than he cares to count, I think a 3rd brake light is a good idea. Of course, I also think there is no hope for someone that hits something as big as a house sitting in front of them, but that's another story.
I was looking through the products on the website that Devoman provided the link to, and found this, I think it would be an excellent addition to the 3rd brake light:

Brake Light Pulsator

Get their attention fast when your brake lights pulsate at 300 pulses per minute (5 per second!). Simple two wire connection - cut the feed wire to the light(s) and install the STOP-ALERTTM with the terminals provided. Works for third brake lights or main brake lights or both. Solid state, uses no additional power. Rated at 60 watts continuous (5 amps incandescent), great for two #1157 bulbs or Ultra Brights plus a 3rd brake light (for Halogen taillights, one per light is needed).
Only 1-3/4" x 7/8" x 1-1/8.
#AM-01 (each)
$30.00

Just a thought...
I have seen the center clearance light rigged this way on local delivery trucks (like bread vans). I don't know how "legal" it is, but I thought it was a good idea, especially with a regular clearance light on either side of it.

so the euro 'stream photo, the right/red is ok here, but the white/left is NOT.

those are nice led/brake lights u linked, buy one and post pix of the install.

The white light pictured is a reverse light. The red one is a rear fog. European cars are a hobby of mine. A rear fog light is simply a red light that is roughly the same intensity as a brake light, usually only on one side, but sometimes both. White lights in the rear are just as illegal in Europe as they are here.
Example of a VW Jetta with rear fog turned on:

I like the idea of wiring in the top three marker lights if that could be done easily. For those of you who have removed the inner skins, where are the wires for those top marker lights located? Although, now that I think about it, I don't have any upper marker lights. Back to the idea of setting up a third brake light in the rear window.
