Is there a definition of "constructive?"

ACBL Mid-chart, under allowed conventions...

3. All other constructive rebids and responses are permitted

Let's say partner opens 1. If want 2 to be a weak 2 in a major, is there a minimum # of HCP required for it to be considered "constructive" or is the fact that I have something specific I am trying to show enough to make it a constructive bid? Would there be a hand such that I could bid 1 2 natural, but not 1 2 showing hearts? or 1 2 showing either major?

Mid-chart... no need GCC responses, would not play this in GCC event.

If anyone has a pointer to a published definition of "constructive", I would appreciate it.
