I had mine replaced last week, just a little under 6 months past the three year warranty. I got it done "good faith", but I'm also the original owner of the bike. The guy I talked to at the dealer said that was definitely a factor in getting not only the cost of parts covered, but also the labor. You might get lucky on parts if you have a nice dealer, but based on what I heard it would be somewhat surprising if they covered the labor.

I don't know if I'd classify it as it "strictly" cosmetic, it may indeed weaken the fuel tank. But the cracks will not instantly cause fuel leaks.

I don't have a cutaway, but here are pictures of where the fuel pump and filler neck are mounted.
