Martin Lindfors's bidding problem: AKQJ QJ 984 K982
Agreed. For context, see: http://bridgewinners.com/article/view/bidding-problem-2-mhe03xooa9/
Leonard Helfgott's bidding problem: AKQJ QJ 984 K982
I am sure that your statement "most would not" is wrong. Some would not, but some would. Exactly 3=4=3=3 is not particularly likely, either. As to your second paragraph, let's see. https://bridgewinners.com/article/view/bidding-problem-2-5ncnff3lgq/
Clearly they did deserve each other(same set)
The spade king was offside, but the heart queen was onside. I don't think there was anything particularly unlucky about North's bidding. It was just plain bad.
Definition of cheating
I think 7 is just bridge. No partnership agreement (implicit or explicit), no requirement of disclosure.
Leonard Helfgott's bidding problem: AKQJ QJ 984 K982
Well, that's not exactly the equivalent auction, since partner would either Stayman or transfer and then invite. If they did, I would raise. If they would make a direct major-less 2NT invite, the case for passing is stronger.

1 - 1 - 1 - 1NT - AP Turns out partner held a 9-count and game was fine. 1 - 1 - 1 - 1NT - 2NT - AP Partner held a 6-count and 2NT went down.
Andy Caranicas's bidding problem: QJ76543 4 654 Q4
4 seems very rich.
How "clean" has the Bermuda Bowl been?
You say "false", but your reasoning seems to point to "don't know".
Confession of a Self-Kibitzer
In that case, we should start by abolishing bidding boxes and screens.
Opening standards: LTC vs Point Count
Nobody claims that tens are useless. But also, nobody *should* claim that an ace is less valuable than two queens, with nothing else known about the deal.
