Should The Pass be Disallowed after the Pause

Phil Clayton's bidding problem: JTxx A Jxxx ATxx
So was I (referring to Phil's comment)...
Double on bergen/mixed raise
OP specified (in title) “Mixed Raise” so presumably the 3 shows less then a Limit Raise. Also, I believe that “Expert Standard” is that the Double is Takeout over the Mixed Raise and Lead Directing over the Limit Raise regardless of which Major was opened.

Mikael Rimstedt's bidding problem: AQ6 Q7642 A AK76
I have too much to Pass. The Spade finesse is likely to be on if we need it and I would be surprised if we don't have 5 level safety. I will ask for Key Cards and bid slam only if partner has both.
