Checkback Auction When Playing Reverse Flannery By Responder

2/1, 15-17 notrump, Reverse Flannery by Responder*, Two-Way Checkback**.

I'm interested to see whether there's consensus on how best to take advantage of these tools after an uncontested auction beginning 1m - 1 - 1NT.

If the answer to #2 is no and #s 4-6 are yes, then how does responder look for 4-4 heart fit and also initiate slam exploration?

*Reverse Flannery By Responder: JS to 2 shows sub-invitational major 5=4+, JS to 2 shows invitational major 5=4+

**Two-Way Checkback: assume most GF sequences start with 2, invitational with 2

Please select up to 6 choices.

1. 2 is non-forcing with major 5-5 or better (edit: including 6=4)
2. 2 is forcing with major 5=4 or better
3. 3 shows slam interest with 5=5 or better
4. After 2 - 2, opener may have 4 hearts
5. 2 - 2 - 3 may be 5=4 with interest in playing potential 4-4 heart fit
6. After 2 - 2 -3, opener should raise with 4 hearts
7. Other, please explain
