I turned engine off for a few minutes (part of my guaranteed process to replicate the problem), started it up and demonstrated the rattle by revving to ~3300 rpm and let off the gas. rattle-rattle-rattle as the rpms came down. All three nodded their heads in unison.

This had been a problem for me for a while but have learned it is best for everyone if I am sure a problem can be reliably repeated.
thanks for sharing yoru experience. what did the dealer end up servicing in your situation?
