    Problems I've spotted and my suggestions:

    This might make awkward potions too easy to brew. My suggestions to resolve this would be to program them similarly to brown mooshrooms. If fed blaze powder, they could be milked for awkward potions a limited number of times.

    They might make overworld awkward potions too easy to brew. My suggestion for this would be to have them transform into a normal cow when pushed through a portal, sort of like a reverse skeleton-to-wither-skeleton transformation.

    They might make finding food in the nether too easy for some players. If this is the case, it might be a good idea to have them only drop mushrooms, or maybe have them drop beef on peaceful and easy difficulties only.

    They do not solve the problem of where to find glass in the nether. Hopefully a creative player or Minecraft developer will solve that half in another post or announcement!

    Good idea. Nether should have more animals than only Hoglin.

    Additional idea: now that we know that hoglins eat the new mushrooms, they should attack this type of mooshroom as well! It would make them a little more difficult to find, and would give them some interaction with the mobs in their environment.

    This idea occurred to me recently as I've been building a nether base. This idea is rational.

    When playing exclusively in the nether, mushroom stew is your only source of food (for now). A mooshroom cow is the next obvious evolution of nether food production. Not only do I believe mooshrooms should be native to the Nether, but the Mushroom Fields should be a Nether biome.

    Alternatively, the upcoming Hoglin could have a similar nether mushroom variant.

    RoyalRex2 they should only attack the crimson type, because hoglins are scared of warped fungi.

    I agree. I am going to add them in a mod and when right-clicked with shears, they will spawn a nether cow found in the wastes and they will drop 5 of their corresponding fungus. They can be bred with nether wart blocks off of the huge fungi. When milked with a bottle, they give water bottles or other things. When killed, or like infernal cows, which would be found in the nether wastes or when the fungi is sheared, they will drop inferno-brisket, a nether version of beef, another food source besides hoglin pork. It would give fire resistance for 15 seconds when eaten, making it handy for getting out of lava.

    Maybe Striders should follow the Warped Mooshrooms around, while the Crimson ones will be attacked by Hoglins. There is also the possibility that Hoglins would still attack the Warped Mooshrooms, but be more tentative about it because of their fear. The idea of them giving water bottles when milked is a good alternate for awkward potions, especially since awkward potions don't currently have a warped counterpart. I'd still prefer that Hoglins and mushroom stew be the main food sources of the Nether, but if the players and developers agree, having them drop normal beef is a possibility.
