We could argue in circles about this. Hijaz in D is the same notes as starting the G harmonic minor scale on the 5th degree. Sure, every single mode of the Hijaz OR harmonic minor scale is cool, and can be used in reference to whatever key you're in.

I was trying to point out that every scale has several ways of looking at it and using it, and by looking at them different ways, you can come up with even more scales and colors to play around with...
