The definition of a hub is really as simple as what the airline wishes to call it.
I think that is a matter of opinion. I would say that WN has hubs in MCO, BWI, MDW, PHX, OAK, DAL, and HOU etc..... One of the biggest factors I would look at is whether or not they base flight crews there. By your arugument CO could just come out tomorrow and say IAH isn't a hub anymore, and not decrease flights and you would say, "yeah it isn't a hub". I mean, if it all goes off what the airline says..... Because they always frame everything with accuracy? I think not.
