It's fine. On the thick bit. Treat it as a bit of extra tread :-)

I'm with every one else on the tyre front, if you wanted a bit more piece of mind you could push the nozzle of a tube of puncture repair vulcanising rubber cement in the hole and fill it, it would stop other small bits and bobs going in there. Do it after your next ride while the tyre is still warm and it would dry over night. It would just shut the door.
Don't mess with the guy if the guy don't mess with you.

 Funny, I was thinking about suggesting the same thing with Superglue.

Vulcanized rubber!
Treat everything in life the way a dog would- if you can't eat it or foc it, forget it.
