I think it would be interesting, the WordPress through their APIs, allowing fix the header of a table when the scroll action is happening.

A page that could make use of this functionality is the Posts list.
When the user has many posts, to scroll down the page, the table header is not more visible.
This could also be very useful for plugin authors. That have pages with listings.

I think I'd need to feel this in a patch. I'm a little concerned about multiple panels and what happens on certain pages. That said, if we can get a patch and run through the paces, things will be easier to evaluate. I would also suggest we turn this off for mobile and consider any a11y implications we may be causing.
