New way to make a Slam try in Majors over 2NT

3NT: Slam try with 5-5+ in the majors

               4♣/4: Good hand for Hearts/Spades bidding cheapest suit is a retransfer. Kickback possible now or after retransfer

               4/4♠: Better hand for named major but not a great slam hand
             4NT: would be an off-shape hand usually 2-2 in majors

bidding 5 of a minor by responder would be exclusion key card over any bid agreeing trump.
Obviously this means one cannot bid 3NT directly but must use puppet Stayman. Most hands respobder will want to do that anyways to find a 5-3 major suit fit.
