thorough sanding, priming, and repainting. or just keep it clean and
keep an eye on it til it gets worse.

Yeah, sand it off totally, put on some good rust resistent printer and
repaint it, make sure you sand it off from the back side as well if
possible. It will definately slow down the problem, but it won't stop it

Live with it.

14 year old cars do that. It has a LONG way to go before this is an
issue.

Same spots are going on my wife's 92 Accord at about the same rate of
erosion by the looks.

I know this is not a big problem, but I want to slow it down before it
becomes an issue.

Sorry it's actually a 94.

I have found that using a steel brush on an electric drill is the least
painful way to remove rust. I use a small diameter (2" / 50 mm) brush
with fine bristles. Mine is Vermont American part number 16788. On
surfaces pitted with rust the brush seems to work better than sand
paper.

Be prepared to prime in the same session as sanding and brushing, you
don't want bare metal to be exposed for any length of time.

Actually it is a big problem as what appears at the surface hides what's
really below it.

Honda's are notorious for rust and once it begins... It is the
beginning of the end.

Do a cosmetic repair and press on. Anything more is a waste of time and resources.
