Thanks Andrea your words confirm my own research.

Out of the alternatives I prefer the constructor hint. Once inside the
WebMapService object it is easier to pass the hints to where they are
needed.

For the system hint approach, if you like that more, was focused on setting
a an entity resolver.

I note the geoserver codebase (not geotools) already has a custom entity
resolver for the 1.1.1 DTD which it uses during encoding.
