The priority is ok for me, though I don't think closing the gap to the top 
chrome would be very difficult (is it?).

Why? We waste vertical screen space to show that it is not the only top 
element? Then we still could make the gap to the top chrome half transparent 
to make the scrolling less confusing imo. But at least I understand now why 
you both think it is more consistent to leave the gap.

Or I will fix it, if it annoys me too much :-P Would be nice if somebody else 
would join.
