If hoping/hopeful/hope are/is a reflective outcome of a embodiment composing their world, us humans, then hoping and hopeful are distinctions of intention and notice. As such they would be auxiliary emotions of the worldbuilding/moral urge, for which my words are inexact. The ambiguity glossed over by philosophers is then perhaps not heinous. The distinction is however welcomed, and cheered because once split it can be slashed back together hoping/hopeful/hope in a further distinction of use, indeed, why not a distinguished hope.
