Theoretically, if the discs arent coated with some asti-rust agent, the surface inside the grooves/holes is free to develop corrosion without getting scrubbed clean by the brakepads. I have no idea if this would be of any significance though, it might impact the structural integrity to the point where cracks develop easier, but again, i simply dont know.
