Although it didn’t appear to be leaking at the time, it has obviously seen better days. It seems to me that the hole would gradually rust out and prevent the valve from shutting off the supply, not to mention leakage problems.
Fortunately(?) piping is going to need to be replaced. Functional flow in this house was fun...turn on the tub faucet and anything else in the home became nothing more than a dribble.
