Scenic wheel arch carpet?

The rear edge of the wheel arches on my 2000 scenic are just starting to show signs of corrosion so I'm going to do strip the paint back remove any corrosion fill and paint. I've had the old girl almost from new so she's worth the effort!

I've always wondered about that strange carpet stuff the rear arches are lined with, is it there to deaden sound or something? I've always been a bit dubious about it holding water and increasing the risk of corrosion. If I remove it am I likely to find more horrors? Is it worth making some covers out of plastic?
