Stayman Super Accepts

  Playing Garbage Stayman, it is generally considered that the seqence 1NT - 2 - 2NT is not needed and is unsound (because partner has not guaranteed any values for his 2 bid).  
  However, there is actually a sound use for this 2NT bid (and even 3♣, 3, 3 and 3!) and they are collectively called Stayman super-accepts. I know that it does not seem possible, but check it out. It's in the No Trump bidding book or else in the pdf/doc link at the top of this page.  
  There is an excellent example of a Stayman Super-accept in news sheet 352
