If 2 is really played as non-forcing then i agree this hand might qualify for 2. Does that mean 1NT is a game forcing raise?
Please comment our bidding
The methods preclude co-operation. If responder decides to transfer to 2 then drop it opener with short does not get to correct to 2. So while i agree with your sentiments in general terms i don't agree in this particular situation which is in effect blind.

Reversing in competition - implications arising
