I can't imagine why this area would get touched at all. It's no where near the door release button, and not ideally placed as a spot to push the door open.Door cards are one of the places I prefer not to have it (unless maybe it's black?). Anywhere you have to touch on a daily basis I think is a bad idea except for black textile fabric or leather.
I touched it once...on the day we picked up the car... on purpose. I've not touched it since. This is not the reason to avoid having it on the door.
