Prince did something like this in their More and Air frames. Had no grommets, but had something on the frame that in lieu of grommets. One of the Prince OG series had no grommet strip. I think there was also a Wilson PS 6.0 85 with the same setup. All these frames replaced the grommet strip with some sort of soft plastic where the grommet strips sit. Problem was there was nothing protecting the head (tape I guess) and you could not enlarge the hole. [Which is why Prince went to O3, EXO3, Power Holes and everyone else just went back to grommets.]
So the answer is you can string without grommets. But you still have to protect the strings from the edge of the frames' holes. You can either break strings or the grommet hole if the string collapses the graphite.
