I think the Hope Pro III even though you know them fits your bill
Red
Fit and Forget (or easily changeable bearing or send them to hope to do)
28/32/36 hole

Road and non disc MTB use.

Keeps the Barnoldswick population in jobs too if you buy them ;)

Go on, live a bit. Go for the Phil hubs. They will still be a good investment when your grandchildren are handing them on to the next lot. Absolutely the best hubs money can buy. My 30 year old examples are still butter smooth and free of play on their original bearings and still look brand new!
