What's a "Comparable Call"?
It is unfortunate that people confuse the terms ‘call’ and ‘bid’ just as people confuse ‘evidence’ and ‘proof’ and many other well defined terms. A bid is a number of tricks followed by a denomination so pass is not a bid, as Jim says.
Bid spades or double?
I think both pairs I know of who had difficulties on this sequence had methods to show 4s and a game force over 2N.
Do Sandwich No Trump bids need to be alerted
Is it alertable? It depends on the jurisdiction, ie where it is. I see some responses have assumed ACBL but not everyone on BW is in the ACBL. It is certainly alertable throughout the British Isles and in the ACBL.
What's a "Comparable Call"?
If you are going to change the law completely there are better solutions.
What's a "Comparable Call"?
I have no liking whatever for the Comparable Calls law which I think is a dreadful law. But giving A- seems pretty poor as a solution. Why not allow any call but the IB is UI to partner, AI to the opponents?

David Stevenson's bidding problem: A2 J7 AKT5 KQ764

David Stevenson's bidding problem: A2 J7 AKT5 KQ764
I held this hand and passed as 46% of you do. Partner had not got opening values though she had 5s so she really was not good enough to overcall 3 nor protect with 4. I felt this was merely a howling success for weak twos and ...
ugly insufficient bid over multi 2D
Ugh. Does a preference bid “specify” that suit? Somehow it feels wrong. I said 2S could be a stiff S and 3Hs: with a partner who plays traditional style weak twos it could really be H xx. I suppose it could be said to specify Hs but I don’t ...
