It would appear to this pair of eyes to be both structural as well as functional. Note the comments about tubular steel strength at welds for the structural functionality.

It also functions as a "skid Plate" for any off roading type activities where something could impact and damage the oil pan.

Would have been nice to have something going all the way back or another plate for the transmission pan protection

Yeah, I would reuse the bolts for this plate application, however, for a bolt such as the crank pulley bolt, I would strongly consider replace that one.
