Haro's 'Raw' frame color

I just noticed on Haro's site; some of their bikes are offered in a raw, unpainted color choice. Isn't it a bad idea for steel to be unpainted, so it can rust more easily?

Like this one:

raw is aw-sum. the little burn marks in it make it look cool, and yes they do have a clear coat on the metal, as do all painted frames.
