Drive shaft problem

had the wheels off the roaster last weekened and i noticed the paint covering on the driver's side drive shaft was all peeling off and it is going rusty,could this cause a problem long term or is it pretty normal ? was thinking i could clean it up and paint it ? if it is a issue.
