Default Bubbling Clear coat

I pass a '98 Forester GT on my way to work everyday and it's roof is a mess of bubbling clear-coat. It looks like an expensive repair job.

Now I've just noticed a 4cm diameter round area on my own '00 GT's quarter panel which appears to be the same thing but it's not very bad rubbing and pushing on it doesn't move anything so it hasn't quite de-laminated yet.

Is this a common issue? Anyone else seeing these symptoms?

I've read that on metallic paint cars that the UV reflects off the paint back up into the clearcoat and over 10 years causes a chemical to break down in the clear.
