I would sand down, and not rescribe.

engraved lines would be just as wrong as raised lines on an F-22. Instead, mask off panels when you paint, and maybe make a very subtle change in the shade of paint you are using for different panels. Of buff different panels to change the sheen.
but do leave a slight reminisce of the LO. Hasegawa was right in depicting the raised LO areas, they just made it too pronounced. I would not rescribe anything as it's not necessary since the kit pretty much depicts the panels and doors that are not filled and faired.
One of the guys in my club made a plaster reinforcement block by masking off and applying plaster to the inside of the upper and lower fuselage halves. I tried this myself was was surprised how easy it was and once it was set, the plaster provided a solid surface to work down the LO areas.
