I think the point of the plating is to prevent corrosion build up in the cooling vanes of the rotors especially the UFOs...Chris Miller and I have removed an inordinate amount of rust from the rotor cooling vanes, and based upon the history of comments on warped UFOs, and the importance of having the cooling ducts, we know that cooling the rotors is critical.
