I wouldn't make the sides too much shorter (in height) than what we saw in the picture, if they were to be that narrow. I'm thinking of mobile babies and the ease with which they roll right over obstacles. Be sure also to consider how well the co-sleeping thingy will work with the bed in general and its other occupants. I love what you describe, but can't picture the scale of it well enough to know how it would work with everything/everybody else.
Our solution, which seems to work pretty well in all different weather, was to get one of those mesh sided bed rails for my side (I put a tightly rolled blanket against the spot where it meets the mattress) so that dd2 can switch sides during the night. If dh leaves the bed for any reason, he turns/stacks his pillows to make a barrier.
