Absolutely agree with all of those, esp. the space-bar Hand tool, tho side-scrolling via the trackpad and scroll-wheel is also good.

One option might be that when the cursor is over the Gantt chart the arrow keys could scroll sideways, or there could simply be a direct menu shortcut for scrolling in increments of the current scale.

Another important addition would be scrolling to show Gantt bars, when the active selection is in the Task pane, scrolling vertically through the list. As the selection switches to an item whose Gantt chart bar is out of the current Gantt pane view, the item would be scrolled into view.

I couldn't agree more strongly, and your mock-up shows why it's necessary, it removes ambiguity from progress against actual time, and provides valuable 'at a glance' info (tho it mightn't need to be quite so strong.) ;)

I might go for a light grey overlay atop what ever background colour/image the user specified.
