What would be comparable?

I was called to the table at a normal club session.

North deals and opens 2, showing 5 hearts, at least 4 of an unspecified second suit and about 6-10 HCP.  East overcalls 2, natural.  South, not noticing the overcall also bids 2, pass or correct.

I ruled that the only comparable call was Pass.  My reasoning was that 2, without the intervening bid, was non-forcing and therefore limited.  Pass was also limited and limited to a lower value than 2 would have been.  Ergo, Pass is a subset of 2.

Was my ruling correct?  Was my reasoning correct?

 

Thanks
