The only accident I've heard of involving O2 servicing was on a Delta 727.
Delta uses the "remove bottle, service and replace" method.

Personally, if it was my airplane I'd want the external panel. No chance of
leaks from breaking the lines and even less chance for accidents caused by
O2 escaping into the E&E compartment.

IMHO.
