Question Hip Throw?

I heard somewhere that 'every throw is a hip throw'

I first thought that this was meant to mean that you used the rotational axis at your hips to throw people in every technique.

Today I was introduced to Koshi Nage, the 'hip throw' in which you load uke upon your hips and then drop him from that position.

So which is correct? Does a hip throw mean I use my hips to throw people? Or does it mean I drop them over my hip? I could see how this works with shihonage and iriminage, but how does this work for kotegashi and kaiten nage, for example?
