There's no force-hint needed in this case.
What happens is that britney starts from the position that the packages
contained in the "hint" should all be migrated and then checks whether any
other packages can be added or removed without increasing the overall
uninstallable package count in testing.
In this case, as a result of the "remove" hint, britney tries removing
libconfig-ini-mvp-perl which fails in the main run but succeeds after the
"hint" is processed as the new version of libdist-zilla-perl is considered
which no longer depends on libc-i-m-p.
I've added your hints (with the _ -> / change I mentioned) so the packages
should migrate today.
