Yes but an easy way to tell the compiler that the hint or warning is
expected must exists and I think that {$HINTS OFF} is a too radical

In my case for the "Parameter not used" I'm using a heavily overloaded
procedure "UseParameter" which does nothing and my code is clear of
this kind of hints. The problem is that I must updated the
"UseParameter" each time I use a new parameter type.

Best regards,
