Well, to be honest I do not use holes now, but that's because I trim the fat off the point a lot more now before chopping and putting them back on. Prior to doing that, I left all the fat on and I did not like the results because they would not firm up the way I liked when there was too much liquid on the bottom. So when asked, I tell people to use drain holes so it's kind of fool-proof that way.
