No, of course an EntityResolver isn't the only way of doing it. As you point
out, there are other ways of solving this problem.

Perhaps I'm unusual, but I find it easier to write

<xsl:template match="processing-instruction('current-dateTime')">
  <xsl:value-of select="current-dateTime()"/>

than to set up CGIs and cron jobs.
