Nex-7 LCD: TruBlack coating wearing off after just 8 months of light use

Is this even possible? I noticed yesterday that the black coating on my Nex-7 LCD is wearing off all around the edges. Tried calling Sony, but you can imagine that experience. Their suggestion was to send it in for a repair, and they acted like they were heroes because itthey agreed to covere it under the warranty. Isn't that what the warranty is for.

My questions are: after the repair, is this just going to happen again? And are there others experiencing the same issue? I looked around the web, and all the threads on this were over a year old. I'm wondering if other Nex-7 owners are experiencing the same problem. Look closely around the edges, and in the areas adjacent to control buttons next to the LCD.
