Not an issue if the OP is not running tubeless, of course.

Not sure I am following, here. If you cover the holes, you are putting the tape on the bottom of the well. What is the alternate recommendation?
I should have said this in the post - I do not plan to run tubeless initially. My initial thought was to get some 10mm wide Velox and run it in the channel.
