What I do not understand is why there is still this discussion (I salute Peter's patience).

It's was designed as a running light for the VFX Enterprise model and is clearly revealed as a running light in TOS.

There is a discussion because not everyone agrees with you.

Various shapes were illuminated equally on the original model.

Can you show me a single Matt Jefferies sketch or vintage blueprint that labels that as a running light?

For TOS to "clearly reveal" that it was a running light, we'd need Scotty telling Kirk that his crews just changed that running light bulbs on both sides of the shuttlebay.
