When is koshinage not koshinage?

We have an ongoing debate about the correct way of performing koshinage and wondered what people thought....

Is koshinage done from low on the back, over the hips, or is koshinage performed by throwing uke high over the back in the classic breakfall type technique?

The lower version is still very effective and at lets uke of all experience receive and roll out of technique whereas the high breakfall version requires more experience.

What do people think of the various ways of doing koshinage (do you have your own version of it?) and the merits of one type of throw over another?
