I wrote the PDGA on this exact subject.

Here was the reply.

Ultimately, it'll come down to a call by the TD. The rule is intended to prevent gross modifications, such as adding or removing a significant amount of material.
Some changes will happen naturally from use, of course. Bending a disc is okay.
Rubbing a disc on the street to remove plastic is in more of a grey area.
