2/1 structure question (major suit agreement at 2-level)
Yes. Fred commented informally on BBO forums, which is captured in this old BW post: http://bridgewinners.com/article/view/fred-gitelman-advice-5-21-sequences/ There have been other posts on BW, like this series of posts: http://bridgewinners.com/article/view/openers-rebid-after-1s-2m-2h-2s-part-4/
