If you really want to be anal, you can use compressed air to blow off water droplets off the rotors after you wash your car to slow done rust generation. Personally I'd rather just do a few hard braking runs (but then again the rust doesn't bother my but I do like to test out the ABS system every once in a while ).
the only thing that will work is braking or parking indoors. Even blowing the water off with air won't help because humidity will still cause the issue if the car is parked outside...but as you said, re-bedding the brakes will clean the rotors easily.
