The slot does not have to be a contiguous 'hole'. Just as rounded corners reduce stress, placing a bunch of smaller holes reduces potential stress points as well as maintains strength. And a whole bunch of circular holes is even stronger: trading maximum airflow volume for a very limited loss in rigidity. Have a look at the front of a Mac Pro.

Apple could always use Liquidmetal and then the case would maintain it's structural rigidity.
