There are some pictures on Flickr of people whose chainstays end up flattened after drilling like that, but the chainstay bridge in that case also looks like the owner had let it rust too much, so it could have simply been neglect.

I emailed Xtracycle about it when I was doing mine and faced a similar problem (but that was that the chainstay bridge was actually too far away to get the bolt on the other side), and they said its just fine to have the bolt *before* the bridge as long as it still sits snug. Hopefully your solution will work out well for you though, and congratulations on the 'X!
