NAMYATS overcall

The auction goes 1 banana-(4)- AP. Before the opening lead, declarer announces "I have two ways to bid , and 4 is weaker." Upon inquiry, 4 by declarer would've been a stronger hand with long . Director ruled " no failure to alert, b/c 4 is natural."

This seems patently wrong on GP, but then....

I'm interested in whether 4 should've been alerted(4 is a no-brainer for an alert), and MORE INTERESTED in a citation to authority: Director looked at all the charts etc and said he couldn't find a clear answer (not surprising).
