SOURCE: loose heat shield
Most likely it's a heat sheild on the converter, maybe the muffler. 1 on top and 1 on the bottom. The heat sheild is welded to the converter, over time they rust away, around the welds. You can use a large diameter worm gear clamp to keep the heat sheild from rattling. The sheilds are in place so if you drive over grass, the heat from the converter won't ignite the grass.

SOURCE: heat shield rattles
I wouldn't recommend removing it, as it's there to protect the area from the high heat of the cat. I've had the same rattle problem, and a piece of a coat hanger through a couple of holes drilled through the shield, then tightly attached solved the problem.

I wouldn't say it is common. There are quite a few heat shields around the stock exhaust "header" and exhaust system. There are also FOUR motor mounts that you can check to see if all bolts are tight. They are all 14mm heads on the motor mounts, 12mm on the exhaust shields. These seem to be the main things that may get loose or make a rattling sound. The exhaust gasket is also designed to flex when the engine flexes - I would check into the exhaust. You have to remove the TRD strut bar to gain better access from above.
