What do you call such a bid?

What would be a generic term for a bid that has multiple and greatly differing meanings?

Examples of generic terms for what I do not mean:

  • catch-all or default bid: a bid for any hand unsuitable for any other bid
  • puppet: transfer to the next bid without suggesting any values in its denomination
  • relay: call that provides little or no information but requests partner to further describe their hand.

Examples of conventions that fall under what I do mean:

  • Gazzilli: 1/-1SA-2 as either a club suit or any strong hand (or yet other)
  • Multi 2 opening: weak two in either major or something very strong
  • 1/-2 as a three-card limit raise or any of various game forcing hands.

Is there a generic term for such bids?
