to be a full node you need to offer a full service
validate AND archive

if your just a validator thats for your personal utility. as the next peer would also validate so you are not really serving them in regards to just validating.

other peers care more about being able to provide them with any/all archive data. thats the main part of the p2p network.
with knowing ~144 blocks a day are mined 550 is not really that much data. ~4 days.
some nodes are set to the 288 minimum (~2days)

many transactions hang in mempool limbo far longer. so if a peer comes online wants to build a block when it receives a blockheader. of 5 days ago..but a peer has removed data beyond 4 days ago. some tx's cant be bloom filtered to the peer wanting tx's from 5+days ago

thus its not offering a full service. thus not a full node.

maybe terminology needs to advance
think food

fullnode=NODE_NETWORK, NODE_BLOOM, NODE_WITNESS, NODE_NETWORK_LIMITED
               =does it all including archiving and has segwit data
satisfiednode=NODE_BLOOM, NODE_WITNESS, NODE_NETWORK_LIMITED
               =self validates. then prunes data. then only relays recent data
hungrynode=doesnt validate everything, just wants to feed off others
                =spv node/litenode
compatible=NODE_NETWORK, NODE_BLOOM
                =stripped(downstream filtered) legacy node(no segwit)

basically if ur not flagging all 4 flags, your not a full node

This shallow debate is becoming amusing. Can everyone agree to call an unpruned archive node a "super full node", and a pruned node just a "full node"? Haha.

Or maybe someone from Core should make the terms official. But I already know a small group of people will make another political drama out of it because "it's centralizing".

Before the troll twins Franky1 and Zin-Zang derail yet another topic, the question was not the definition of a full node.  Please consider starting a new topic if you want to discuss nomenclature.  Pruned nodes do support mining.  No amount of quibbling changes that.
