Rusty A-pillar on an SL sounds worrisome, that's what keeps your head on in a roll over. As already suggested if you can check how much and how widespread the rust is, just surface or more sinister, then you will be in a better position to make a decision. Did the shop that wrote the report offer an opinion of the rust severity?
Also, be sure it is not a flood damaged car having rust in some of those other places you mentioned.
Personally I never buy a car with rust but that's maybe easier said here in the US west coast than it is there for you, so if it;s not terminal and you can attend to it, and if this is a hard to find dream car for you, then give it a go!
