John Torrey's bidding problem: --- KQ982 AQJ975 Q3
Every partnership should have an understanding of the meaning of 6NT in this sequence.
Per-Ola Cullin's bidding problem: 9832 AK2 98 AKT2
We have too good a hand in the context of the auction to pass. Partner needs as little as AKxxxx xxx Axx x for a great slam.

The OP's sequence is fundamentally different to e.g., 1D-1H; 1S-3H, which would almost universally played as invitational.
Is this forcing? (Basic stuff)
I had a long discussion with Jeff Rubens on this sequence around twenty years ago, when I had some time to kill in Tonga. The common - but inferior, IMO - treatment is invitational. The main reasons for this, irrespective of whether we play weak jump shifts, are that a simple rebid ...

Stephen Henry's bidding problem: Q7 T86 AQT76 984

ATB: Wrong red suit?

Lin Li's bidding problem: 7432 K9 T87 AKQ2
Then, again, it often is. For some of us, bidding 2D then supporting spades shows a better hand than my example.
Lin Li's bidding problem: 7432 K9 T87 AKQ2
4S should be a wonderful spot opposite eg Jxx AQJxx Axxx x.
