I would tilt the surface some few ° (top nearer to the wall than the bottom) so stuff won't fall off that easily as it would with the surface being fully vertical.
Apart from that, it looks like it could work.

Absolutely cool idea for not too large workshop and one pair of hands.
One of my friends use a bit simplier way like your.
Your one is better planned of course.

Oh, you'll want to make sure that the upper part won't slide down into the kerf when doing a cut...

When I first got into Festool a dozen years ago, I was thinking of making a large sheet cutting table with Incra Track wrapped around the perimeter to locate the guide rail, so I purchased a bunch of 52" Track. But, I soon realized that such a large table was more complicated than need be, an opted to create a parallel guide instead that would lay on top of the material and reference off an edge. I suggest that you consider taking a simpler approach.

Gregor, his upper piece does not slid down because he has the upper piece clamped with DeStaco type flip clamps to hold it tight to the rack.  This is a great alternative to a $25,000 Streigbeg.

That was directed to the OP, not the video.

I was toying with this idea but never got anywhere with it, using 2 piece of vertical 80/20 to lay the plywood against and clamp @ the top like in the video. This prevents the top piece from dropping and binding the saw blade.

Planned to use a set of rip guides to hang the rail from the top of the plywood. You'd set the target dimension on the guides. The top piece then becomes the working material and the bottom is the offcut.

There are issues to be worked out like holding the material off the 80/20 to prevent cutting into it but the setup seemed workable. I will probably give it a try later this spring.

As of 10/17 I am out of the Dog business and pursuing other distractions. Thanks for a fun ride!

The need to have it tilted back a few degrees and the need for clamping above the cut-off line was also mentioned in the bottom of the second paragraph. I know it's a long post, ...
Must have missed that in the wall of text, smaller paragraphs might have helped me to see it. Sorry for that, have fun with the build.
