I chalk it up to the long and extremely thin (.4mm) tip. Next summer, I'm going to swap them out in favor of NGK Iridium IX with a shorter and thicker (.6mm) tip to see if that remedies the situation.
I've never heard anyone else voice this complaint.

He gave me the run down on them but I dont want to make this post that long. I like to buy quailty, so what ever is best I want. So we have one guy likes the Denso's one guy dont, and we have one for the NGK's.
I don't have a problem with Denso per se, I think they make a fine product. I've run their standard U-Groove plugs for almost 200,000 miles in my last car (not one set, I changed 'em regularly). I'm just making the observation that the iridium tips melted on my iridium Denso's. I think there's a limit to how thin the electrode can be made.
Also the Denso Iridiums are way expensive.
What is the phase 2 engine?
Phase I 2.5 = earlier DOHC version.
Phase II 2.5 = later SOHC version

I am on my third set if NGK platinums in the outback at 60k intervals with flawless performance.
