Some people still have pretty severe Covid without being hospitalized though, and hospitalization might not be equal access across the world.
In some places hospitalization can simply be a distinction of class and finances, rather than Covid severity.
Who gets hospitalized or not can be a triage situation (or maybe no facilities at all), so to call everything "mild Covid" that's not hospitalized is
misleading. And in a triage situation the patient most likely to survive gets the treatment or hospital bed (not the most severely ill).
Well I doubt that specific distinction will take wings in clinical terms, if as the OP opines "mild Covid" is binaried with "hospitalized Covid".
Although we could, and probably will have such distinctions between Covid severity, I don't see this one working globally.
