Well, yes, maybe. I agree partly. However, if your partner alerted and
passed your transfer, you'd most probably pass 2Dx. At least with five
small. So I'm not really comfortable with permitting 2H here. At least
not on all hands that would transfer.

This would also depend on your  partners 1NT opening style. If he
often opens 1NT on 3262 (not to mention 3163) and a decent suit, this
might have to be taken into account - depending upon how well you know
your partners style (it wasn't a regular partnership).'

Kind regards,
