Well, put Brass plugs in the holes. The likelihood of Brass wearing out the cast iron of the engine block is about nil. After 100 years of removing/replacing the brass plugs, they'll wear out and you can replace just the plugs.

I'm not a fan of these kinds of drain valves. When I pull my drain plugs, I normally have to stick a screwdriver in the hole to knock the scale loose before the engine will drain correctly. With a valve in place, you'd never be able to do that.
