The frets should be fine. The metal expands and contracts with heat and the wood will shrink or swell as it becomes drier or more oily depending on climate.

Better to have a gap than a jutting piece of metal, imo. I've seen plenty of guitars with that sort of stuff by the frets and they've all seemed ok to me.

As far as stuff getting into the openings...not likely to cause any problems. normal expansion and contraction will cause far more weirdness with fret seating than a small hole can.
