4th Suit Game Forcing

I had a fairly spirited (for us) disagreement with a partner over the (unopposed) sequence 1-1//1-2//3. We play SNT 2/1, and in this sequence 1 is forcing. What is/should be the meaning of 3?

My position is that 2 asks the questions support? else stopper? so that 3 should show 4+ ; partner's position is that it should show uncertainty about playing NT, either a true partial stopper or something positional like Ax. I think my view is "standard" and superior theoretically, but he has seen a lot more hands than I, so he gets the benefit of a scintilla of doubt....

4+
uncertainty about NT
