Do these integrated headsets use a machined race pressed into the head tube which the cartridge bearings rest upon? If so, are these races removable?

the Cane Creek uses cartridge bearings that sit directly in the head tube. there are no pressed in cups in this design.
not necessarily....C-40

the term "integrated" is used too loosely to describe any nontraditional headset. Cane Creek makes types with a pressed cup and those without.

Two types of integrated headsets
1. Integrated = no pressed in races. Race is machined into headtube of frame

2. Semi integrated, also known as Zero Stack = Pressed in races that sit inside of headtube rather than outside of headtube like a conventional headset.

Both use cartridge bearings.

The link below at park tools web site will give you a good pictorial breakdown and explaination of what the different types of headsets are.
