Does CPO warranty cover rust?

A lot has been discussed here about the rust problems on Mercedes cars, especially W210 and early W220. I was just wondering if the CPO warranty has any coverage for rust like it does for other items? I'm considering the purchase of a nice 2004 S500 (10/2003). It's from a NY dealer, so I'm a little worried about rust. My reading of the CPO warranty is that at a minimum I'm covered for another 12 months even though the original warranty already expired at 10/2007? Is that right, and has anyone ever had rust treated as part of their CPO warranty?

CPO gets you 12 months/100,000 miles, but you can pay extra to extend the years to to 7 from 1st date of service but 100,000 miles is still the cap. So on a 2004 you should be able to extend until sometime in 2011. I bought mine as a CPO and the warranty is excellent but I do not know if rust is covered.
