    Well,food is always placed on a rack above the bottom of the oven,so I don't see any problem.I line the bottom with aluminum foil to catch any spill overs,and change the foil when it looks necessary.My oven has slots on either side to let the heat rise,so of course I don't cover those with the foil.

    Well as long as the food / tray is not on the oven bottom it should be OK.

    I have an old oven tray in the bottom of my oven, which I leave in whilst using it, to catch any spills or overflowing dishes and clean it when needed.

    Meh, it wears with time. You can scrub the hell out of it, but it still will be pitted, depending on its age. Just deal with it.

    If there are no holes should be fine, unless you make scrambled eggs on the bottom of your oven.
