I'd personally probably use steel instead of Ti, but my assumption was that tight is tight, and if it won't slip on the road, why should it slip on the track?
I wouldn't use these on the road or mountain bike unless the bike had vertical drops. Big difference between screwing it on versus clamping it (like a conventional QR). Steel may get you better results. These were ControlTech Ti skewers. Make sure you've got enough thread to shorten the rear to match the 120mm hubs.
Something I didn't try myself but I've seen done with hollow axles was tapping the inside of the axle to 6X1 and using Mavic track bolts. Make sure the threads in the axle are deep enough! Some hollow axles are 5.1mm, some are 5.3 or so and IIRC the right size hole when tapping to M6 is 5.0 mm.
