The use of numeric vs. named entities is not just stylistic.
XHMTL[45] only support the 5 basic named entities interally:

          - &amp; - the ampersand &
          - &quot; - the double quote "
          - &apos; single quote '
          - &lt; - less-than <
          - &gt; - greater-than >

So including any others will generate non-conforming output.
Since the change is cosmetic, I don't see the purpose in adding a lot
of conditional code to the exporter to output different entities for
html[45] vs xhtml[45].
