Sure!  Wearing into the cooling passages is akin to slotted rotors, Some pay
big bucks for this questionable feature.  I've seen working Ford rotors in
which the cooling passages were all visible on one side from backing plate
wear.  Ship them to me, I'll use them when I need new, now why would I ever
need new?
