Re-drilling Neck Holes?

My Deluxe 5 neck came with holes drilled to fit a tiny heel plate that looks like it belongs on a 4-string P or even a Strat.  I'm building a custom body and I'd rather contour the heel and move the screws a little farther toward the edges of the neck joint for better stability and use neck washers instead of the plate.  Is there any reason why I shouldn't do this?

You void your warranty.  Other than that, go for it, but I say try it as is before you break out the drill.
