4 would be forcing and natural, but take it from this spot. 5 is undiscussed but what should it be?
I once yelled at my partner for discarding the 'wrong' card when he was subjected to a squeeze that I allowed by giving the wrong count with too high a card. Now he's allowed to pitch aces when the opponents have the king in the dummy. At trick 2. When he could have followed suit. And blame me.

Is 4N regular blackwood or quantitative?

If I had to make one call with North its 7N. I think its very difficult to come up with hands that are missing some heart duplication where this is not odds on.

5 is a game, so per definition nonforcing. 4NT cannot be quantitative if partner can still have "everything" so I would guess it's regular woody. I bid that. If partner has two aces, put me down for 7N.

Note that you have a similar problem if your opening bid is 1 (natural).

Seems a simple 7N from North should do the trick if you're in doubt. If this has been discussed, or if you have an agreement here that 4N is Blackwood, I guess I'd use it as a safety net.
Yay for the "Ignored Users" feature!

I'd be very glad we play strong here, since we know partner has a strong hand. 4NT blacky, followed by 7NT if we have all the Aces.
