Ya I had a problem with this on my Megas, I believe.
I only had three screws in the heel, and it never blew out on me. The thing is, when it gets so close to the edge like that, you can rip a hole in the skate either when drilling the new holes, or over time the screw will shift and tear a hole.
I hear you about putting in the screws. You don't want to drill too big of a hole, so you end up having to tap them into the hole...big pain in the ***.
