R5: Can exposed metal (from a scratch) rust / corrode?

I've accidentally made a 10mm by 2mm scratch on the top shell of my R5, exposing the magnesium alloy that's underneath as I have scratched off the coating.

I don't care about the superficial, but I do care about rust and corrosion, which the surface coating would normally protect against.

Is this a reasonable concern?

If so, what would you do in order to re-coat the alloy and prevent rust?
