No problem. If it rusts, you can always spray some kill rust on it or WD40. I spray some WD40 every now and then to prevent it getting worse.

I have never actually removed the plate before, but I'd assume you can rip it out by drilling the rivets out and replacing the whole plate with a rubber/plastic type one (might need to make it yourself) to stop it from rusting away down the track. Yes there is just a rubber hose connected to that plate...looks like a garden hose but clear and runs from the drain hole, along the A-pillar and to the sunroof. There are also drain hoses going from the back of the sunroof, along the roof line and to either side of the car along the C pillars near the back windows, just incase you stumble across those later.
