It sounds to me like the oil, etc. from people's hands is getting into the plastic and reacting with it. Different people ooze different stuff so it may only affect people with "harsh" oils.
Has anyone heard of anything you can put on the MacBook to protect the plastic? Either plastic sheets, or something like furniture polish, or 303.
I would try waxing it. It's cheap enough that if it doesn't work, you're not really out anything, plus you can use it on your car anyway. Other than that, when I get my MacBook, I'm going to find a clear plastic film. Probably be able to get that from my local decal dealer.
