Always show a 4-card spade in Precision (or bypass) after 1-1

In Precision where 1=2+ I have been told that after 1-1 opener should always show a 4-card suit even if balanced (11-13 hcp).

It would seem that if you rebid 1NT on balanced hands you can still check back for spades if responder has enough points. Lacking enough points standard will also miss fit if they bypass.

I had a discussion with a friend new to Precision about why you show a 4-card spades suit and it seemed to boil down to because that is the way it is done.

So, I am looking for arguments in favour or against showing 4 with a balanced hand after a 1-1 start to the auction.
