Or is this already possible and I missed something. Basically it would be the exact same thing as doing a status update. With these improvements:
you have two options:
1. Go to Admin Console > global templates and edit the welcome message
2. If Option 1 is not what you are looking for, you can overwrite your theme.
a) If you are using the default theme, go to Admin Console > layout and choose the global layout
b) If you are using your own theme, just modify global.vmd in your theme (or add it, if it's not there by copying the default global.vmd from confluence in your theme and add it to your plugin.xml)
So I'm not seeing your big picture clear, but I think, for that, what you are trying to do, you need to rewrite your dashboard.
So, my advice is, to wirte your own theme. Overwriting the decorater via the admin console is not good, as you don't have a backup of what you did (like in svn or git).
Those are your choices I think.
I might suggest that you open a feature request on:
That is Atlassian's public bug and feature tracker. Posting your request there will hopefully rally others behind your cause. After a feature or bug garners an appropirate amount of community support it can be pulled into a future relase.
