One other thing to consider - I worked on a coworker's brakes a few weeks back, 1997 e320. The rotors were worn evenly, not warped, etc. and looked great with no grinding, but had a deep lip like yours. The lip started cutting into the brake pad sensor. He needed new pads anyway, so we put them in, but his warning light was triggered way too early due to the lip cutting into and grounding the sensor. Also, the lip was contacting the pad backing and causing a grinding noise even though the pad had a bit of lining left. I say replace 'em - they don't cost much at FastLane.
