I don't think anyone disagrees with that.

Those are not half volley technique and I wouldn't call them that; would you?
But they do fit the definition we find when we google it with many sources.

I'm also just raising the question, "Is it worth while to recognize and separate the
difference between the half volley technique and the short hop situation"?
I've never heard of the term short hop situation. Do you mean taking ball on the rise from baseline? Bit confused here sorry.
