Something unusual enough?
"Highly unusual" is not in the wording of the regulations. If your side wins the contract it may be polite to invite opps to ask for an explanation of the auction - but that is etiquette afaik, not regulation.
Just a boring opening lead problem...
"unrealistic" is perhaps a little OTT. I agree a club seems the most likely to work for the best, especially at imps, but I can imagine a spade working better sometimes.

It may well have been in the BB for years - what real difference does that make. I'm a more avid reader of these things than most, but the last time I read it in detail the book was Orange. Anyway, the minutiae of regulation aside, it simply is not ...

IMO the comment in the blue book is just plain wrong. It may well be general bridge knowledge amongst expert and streetwise players. It definitely is not general bridge knowledge amongst average club players.
