Hogging out the holes, is not good practice, but i have yet to hear of any caliper failures in doing it and many cars running on the track have done so.
My 914 has the 944t calipers on all corners, the fronts were hogged out by the PO to fit. My car
was a track car and must of managed to get through inspections that way. On rotors, the 84-89
Carrera rotors which i think are 24mm can be used as long as you keep and eye on your pads and dont allow them to get thin.
If you do choose to use them, use a nice sized washer to help spread the torque and support over
the mounting ears.

Those caliper ears look like they still have a good amount of metal around the holes.
