I rank
  • 4N = UNT, Agree with Phil. Reasonable but brave.
  • Pass = PEN. Partner should have primary support. We have the minors. Even so, 4X might be bad for us,
  • 5 = NAT. Unilateral
  • 4 = NAT. Danger of losing trump control

yuck I hate this; but that's why they preempt, especially at favourable! I think 4NT at IMPs - way too much upside, and I bet the downside will be shared - and pass at MPs - let's hope "any plus is a good score". But I think it would strongly depend on:
  • Namyats or not?
  • How often do they preempt on 6 (and 4 on crappy 7), or is this player the solid type?
  • whether partner and I can defend tonight

I can't understand passing at any form of scoring. I think it is losing bridge to play this dble as penalty.
