As an example, responding to RKCB, with no key cards, I replied 5D- my partner had 3 aces, so my reply had to be zero keycards.
Partner bid the slam, which was doubled.

Partner was mad saying that I showed ONE ace,
I told him default was advanced BBO 2/1 and he kept on insisting the BBO plays 3014. But I was sure,
because I could consult the CC in my Account tab.

I politely told my partner to consult the same CC under his Account tab.

But he kept on brawling.

The was no way to placate the idiot, that was named Frank, if I remember correctly,
that left the table. And never apologized for his mistake.

You can lead a horse to water
You can't make them drink

You can make people swear up and down that they know 2/1, but you can't get them to tell the truth

Practically speaking, your suggestion doesn't do anything

It is nothing more than theater
