Frame Holes- Are These Normal?

I am pretty sure I know the answer here, but just wanted to check. The holes in the frame that the yellow arrows point to, they are not normally there, correct? I think that the hack that installed my dual exhast 25 years ago cut holes in the frame so he could bolt a crummy hanger there. Do you think they pose a structual issue worth welding them back up?

This is the view from under the transmission, looking to the rear of the car.

I don't know if those are for an exhaust pipe hanger but they ere cut with a torch and most factory holes would have been punched out. They are not going to cause the car to break in half, but if you where to weld in a but welded piece of steel of the same gauge it would strengthen that area considerably. Is there a coresponding hole further forward on the outside that would have allowed something to pass through the frame in a straight line?
