Metal shavings in any oil pan is not good. Yes there are bearings in a transmission, chances are that the transmission case is already ruined if you have a pan full of shavings, so a rebuild it yourself is not even an option, you might get a core price if you exchange it at a tranny shop or find a good used one at a wrecking yard.

Remember those shavings will also be in the trans cooler and lines too, so they will have to be cleaned or replaced. Personally I would bypass the radiator cooler completely and put in a oversize cooler out front, maybe one with an electric fan, today's transmissions run way too hot at the best of times, disapating the heat as fast as possible will make them last a long time and reduce solenoid troubles.
