There ya go! ... things that aren't part of my task-at-hand ("why did I
come here? what am I looking for?"). A carousel hides that. But...
supplemental stuff.. sure.

Or to rephrase: I have landed at the page with a goal in mind. How fast can
the page satisfy my need? A carousel holding *my* needed information cannot.

But yes: it does liven up the page, and it can certainly provide some info
that I may have not thought about, or been seeking.
