Peeling? I doubt it is peeling as it is anodized. I would think it might have been scrapped when inserting the sim card holder. Take a closer look as see if it looks more like a scrape.
Personally I am not sure why apple went with aluminum, seems to me to be too soft a material for a phone body. I have a feeling that the iphone 5 might be the last one to use it.
If you are not going to keep your phone in a case I would forget about this scrape. Even in a case it will probably show signs of wear in some places.

Well... Apple ended up replacing it (I tried to get as close as possible with the camera but still doesn't show very well the 'peeling' all around the tray), but not after a very disappointing explanation by the Genius claiming that ALL of the iPhone 5's have manufacturing flaws and that customers should just live with it... serioulsy!?!?
