Generally, stays aren't attached using thimbles as shown in the photo. There is usually a fork type end on the wire as shown below.

But with that said, I don't think that there would be a problem with opening the hole in the tang a "little". The cable diameters you're quoting aren't that big so there isn't that much load involved. But I would drill above the larger opening to retain metal toward the end of the tang. On a vessel with larger diameter wire, I wouldn't suggest modifying the tang.
