Yes it's part of the rollover protection system. Both of the rear headrests will pop up during a rollover. If the OP hits the search, I think somebody posted a diagram or a link to something that explains how it works (probably kat).

Edit: Actually if you look very closely in my sig pic, you can tell that I have the left rear headrest removed here. It's back in now.
Great insight - think I read your thread earlier. God to know they're removable; also the aesthetics top down aren't too disrupted (thought it would look worse).

I suspect we'll go the booster seat route. As mentioned we'll be driving on two long trips this year (to enjoy the car).
