Nope. As Wayne points out, it's the top and bottom chords that provide the rigidity, the web just holds them in position vertically.

If you'll view the cutting and boring charts for those OSB web engineered joists, you'll note that they're pretty liberal in allowing for rather large holes in the webbing.

My opinion; worth price charged.
