Leaving protective coating on rotors?

I'll be installing new rotors tomorrow on the sedan/delivery. I understand that removing the protective coating is normal for a typical install. However, I will not be driving the car until late spring or early summer. Is it advisable to leave the coating on to prevent surface rust and then burn it off with the first few uses of the brakes?

It will wash off with soap and water. Leave it for now but clean it before you drive it. The coating will end up coating the pads and possibly over heating them.
