I don't think so. Many people, esp. new users will be irritated by the text 
scrolling above and below the track. As an alternative the track background 
would have to be transparent, maybe with a very subtle translucent background 
instead of the solid background it currently has and more than the nothing it 
recently had for a short period. This would make it an overlay. But why 
clutter the actual page? The stage imo is a frame to mash different web 
platforms together and in minimal space, not to dominate them. 
For me it also confuses the middle of the interesting headlines on the top of 
the page. Btw. if the track sticks at the top, new users still will recognize 
its prominent role. Just don't force them to get attention imo. Ideally, users 
could drag them around and "dock" them on the top or bottom as they wish 
(including to hide them).
