With a skilled welder (I can think of a handful I'd let weld this) and some reinforcing, I don't see why this is such a terrible idea. If a good welder did it properly, it'd probably be stronger than it was before.
But, when the time comes to do mine in a few years, I know I will be pulling the motor. There's pretty much 3 ways to replace the oil pan. 1. Pull the motor. 2. Loosen the motor, remove the tranny, and lift the motor. 3. Cut the crossmember. #1 is the Ford recommended way. #2 is the cheater way, and everybody who says they did it this way, says next time they're pulling the motor.
