You are right. But so is the article.
To tank or not to tank
Action double would make sense here if 2 would be non-forcing, constructive. With the 2-bidder not being limited in any way, an action double does not work and and I think 4X should be the contract.
Lauritz Streck's bidding problem: QJT 8643 75 9753
Partner might have some extra offence and double. Then I would bid 5.
ATB : missed slam and let opponents in a winning game

Good auction to slam
2 Transfer + 2 would show slam interest in in my system. I would make one more try afterwards.
Paul Grünke's bidding problem: xx Kx AKJx AKJxx
