Included in this 3M™ Headlight Restoration System Kit

It may well be. And it is for really oxidized headlights. Once done and for newer headlights, the prevent method is best: car wax all plastic lenses as you would the car paint. Yes it works; my mom's 2002 Jetta proved it.

Question

I believe i have polycarbonate lenses on my headlights, and the result of 9 years of UV/heat deterioration(and a possible clear coat as suggested by VIP employee[how credible, really]) , it appears to be crazed. Crazed like a fine network of nerves.

I had the Headlight ASSY completely apart, thinking it was originally on the inside lense.

That seems like a need for new lenses.
