Nice route to slam
West might have made one more try with 5, either the K or Q make for a good grand.
Blind Faith
2 springs to mind.

4NT is some freaked up bid.
Benoit Lessard's bidding problem: Axx Q9xxx Txx Tx
You didn't know partner had shortness at your previous turn.
Tempo/UI
How do you know that South did not pass in tempo while West was thinking of bidding 3NT?
Tempo/UI
North knows nothing of that as he's making his decision. How can his options be restricted?
