Smolen Convention -- Is it used for 6-4 in the Majors?

The auction:

1NT (P) 2C (P) 2D (P) 3S  is Smolen showing four spades and five hearts.  Some sources say that this can be used for hands with four spades and six hearts.  For example, https://www.bridgehands.com/S/Smolen.htm.   Other sources say 5-4 and are silent about 6-4.

In your belief, is Smolen usable for hands that are 6-4 in the majors?

No, Smolen can only be used for 5-4 in the majors
Yes, Smolen can be used for 6-4 in the majors, but only if the six card suit is relatively weak.
Yes, Smolen can be used for 6-4 in the majors, always.
