Lawrence's article on jump raises in competition

Mike Lawrence in the February ACBL Bulletin published an article where he suggested that

1 - (1) - 3

Should be a limit raise with the cue bid reserved for a game forcing raise.  This is the same argument he made in his 1992 book "Contested Auctions".

 This made me curious as to the current trend on how to play 3 in the above sequence.  Please feel free to make comments on you major suit raises in competition.

3 Hearts is preemptive
3 Hearts is a mixed raise
3 Hearts is a limit raise
3 Hearts is a game forcing raise
Other (if so what did I miss please comment)
