Like I said, I think it is only negative in that it represents a larger medical problem, or could lead to a larger medical problem.
Hypomania is one of the "building blocks" of mood disorders. Do a google search and see what the DSM has to say, that should help you understand the difference between just feeling good and hypomania as a medical issue.
I think you are right about bi-polar (esp. BP-II) being subjective. I for one still think Manic-Depressive is a better term.
