It must be something like that because the rotor isn't really subjected to much stress otherwise. It's just a well-balanced, lightweight, over-fastened piece of plastic that spins around. Surely you'd have to get something loose or out of balance for it to shatter. I can't really imagine another scenario.
Its not "normal" but its not unheard of.
Likely an imperfection in the manufacturing process, plus the stresses of being attached to an S14.
but as always: YMMV
