Regarding the role of Horace in Dolly, it depends on the actor cast. IMO when Cab Calloway, possibly Eddie Bracken, and probably David Hyde-Pierce were playing it, they were regarded as leads. Walter Matthau in the film is certainly a lead and probably also Paul Ford in The Matchmaker film. It's all about if and how they command the stage or if they act as if Dolly is the sole star. It's also very subjective.

Another factor is whether the show is or perceived to be a commercial success or failure. Hyde-Pierce in Dolly was in a hit, while Briones was in a commercial failure. The situation is a lot more complex than you are making it out to be. My perception is different than yours.
