Should I get the dealer to fix this, and risk a visible patch on the roof, or just let it be? My concern is that in some years time, this will become a point of wear and eventually become a hole/chip/bubble prematurely.

What do you guys think? Should I just stop being so anal?
It all depends on what's under the paint. If it's something like sand or a paint flake, you'll be fine. If it's
rubber, tape, or metal, it may eventually compromise the paint.

I had a brand new Mazda 626, and found a small bump in the paint on the hood. Not wanting to risk an
imperfect repair for a barely noticeable flaw, I chose not to get it fixed. Bad decision! After the warranty
expired, the paint began to bubble and flake off in a thumb nail sized area. I wish I had got it fixed, but
that was hind sight.

Maybe you can talk to the dealer, and ask them to log a complaint, and agree to fix it should it worsen.
