making holes in kiln shelves

Has anyone tried doing this to electric kiln shelves? Euclids said they used to carry shelves that had holes approx 2cm dia., placed 2cm apart. I am tentative, to say the least, about drilling into a kiln shelf, but believe holed shelves would aid my tile firings. I mainly fire tiles, to ^5, and am very worried about cracking/warping. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated!

P.S. Sorry to repeat a topic, but I read the postings from 2002 and 2003 and didn't get the info I'm looking for. Euclids said they used to sell shelves with holes but they don't anymore (it was a close out).
