Variations on a theme

I am aware that partnerships are not allowed to have agreements after irregularities involving insufficient bids.

But this week I had a position I hadn't seen before

Against the auction:

1-1-Pass-1

Pass 1NT Pass 2

All Pass

 

Because you are a smart alec you elect to lead the H6 from

Kxx/K6/K10xx/Axxx

 

About one second later (clearly later) partner leads the D5 out of turn!

Dummy hits with

109/AQJxx/A9x/Jxx

 

and we agree my card is the lead, partner's a penalty card.

Declarer takes two minutes to play from dummy and puts the ace up; oth defenders know she has a singleton for sure.

What agreements are we allowed to have about the meaning of the heart played by partner in the context of declarer being about to enforce a penalty (lead a diamond/don't lead a diamond)?
