As they say in the movies, this is Based Upon A True Story.  All four 
players are Canberra experts. North-South use Keycard Blackwood to reach 6S, 
with South declarer. As is his wont, West requests an explanation of every 
bid in the auction. When it comes to 5H the incomplete explanation "two 
keycards" is given. West then asks the supplementary question, "Does it deny 
the queen of spades?" Of course the answer is affirmative, and of course the 
success of 6S depends on a two-way finesse for the queen of trumps, and of 
course declarer finesses through East, and of course West wins the setting 
trick with the queen.  Declarer casts aspersions at West, then summons the 
Director. How would you rule?

IMO the director should impose a DP on declarer. Result stands.
