Responder's jump rebid in an XYZ auction

1 - 1

1 - 3

Note: In XYZ, responder has three ways of showing a forcing hand with hearts:

1. Start with a jump to 3

2. Start with 2 and then rebid hearts.

3. Start with 2 and after the 2 relay, jump to 3, although this is an obscure use.

In the above sequence, 3 shows exactly what? Also, please comment on what "2" is (or "3" if you have bothered to define it).

It is a strong slam try and sets trump (i.e., we are playing 6 unless you hate your hand). Example: xx AKQJxxx x AKx
It is a mild slam try and sets trump (i.e, we are playing 4 unless you like your hand): xx AKQJxx QTxx x
It is not a slam try at all, but merely sets trump, and partner can bid past 4 with the nuts: Ax KQJTxxx xxx x
It is a strong slam try, but opener can suggest another strain by rebidding 3, 3N or 4, so 3 DOES NOT necessarily set trump: Ax KJTxxxx Axx A
It is a mild slam try, but opener can suggest another strain by rebidding 3, 3N or 4, so 3 DOES NOT necessarily set trump:xx KJTxxxx Axx A
