Whether something is really distributed or not is not only debatable but more importantly transient. Maybe it is today and not tomorrow.

Yes, you may consider that HS is not fully distributed because of the reasons you stated (many may disagree with you, hence debatable) but if you REALLY wanted to do something about lack of decentralization, you could: just start another mining pool. This is the other aspect of public blockchains that normally goes unmentioned when calling them distributed and trustless: they are permissionless.
