Rich—I think using both miter tracks is a good idea, especially if the sled is heavy. I may be wrong about this, but I think John Nixon’s Super Sled ( http://www.eaglelakewoodworking.com/post/Super-Sled-Crosscut-and-Miter-Sled.aspx ) uses both tracks.

I have seen some smaller sleds with no front cross piece (I have one that I use for cutting small parts), but for a larger-scale sled, you may need both the front and rear cross pieces just for stability of the work surface.
