Agree.

But should South pass 3C doubled for penalties? Or bid 4H? or 3NT?


What would a 3 Q bid by North mean? stronger than a X?

Even then?
I remember "a good 8-9" as early Acol, this is 8 but not that good even in California (to paraphrase Chico Marx).
By 1973 Terence Reese had already raised the bar to 10-12.


I've seen at least one experienced player at my club bid 2/1 with a hand like that as 8+ HCP was considered enough when they learnt to play.

I agree, Crowhurst (1974) was on 9 hcp, but not a heap of misfitting junk like that. AKQxxxx would justify a two-level response.
