Might not be as "clean" though.
Unless you have a lot of experience drilling, I wouldn't risk it.
And good luck finding a titanium drill bit, and spending the money for it.
(Although I know you're probably joking)
If you mis-drill the rivet, you could end up enlargening the hole which could case you more problems than you could imagine.
It is copper, so it should be a pretty soft drill. I would just use extra caution and practice before you drill it.
Or just play it on the safe-side and take to to someone who can do it right.
