I would say either is fine. My one caveat being that slings should be removed form the harness regularly.

If I arrive at the belay and need a quick sling to clip into, I'll girth hitch the belay loop. 'Cause it easy. As long as the sling is not left permanently in place wear can be minimized and seen well before it is unsafe.

If I've planned ahead I'll go through the power-points. This way the belay loop is left free for belaying.


Edit to add: Harnesses wear out over time. As long as your paying attention and replace when needed, no harm no foul.
