I've taken a look into the Wikipedia article about Conlangs, but it doesn't really give a clear definition, pretty much because there isn't one. It mentions Interlingua and Latina sine Flexione as additional examples of languages based on a natural language (Latin), but these do not claim to continue the original language but to simplify it, unlike Modern Hebrew.
Frankly, it feels like nitpicking to me now; let the scholars argue about hyper-accurate definitions, like they argue whether Pluto should be considered a planet or not. Modern Hebrew has effectively become a natural language after being spoken as a mother tongue for several generations.
