I don't treat 1c-1d-1h-1s as artificial. It sold 4 spades only with 4+ diamonds.

After 4 I expect partner to cue-bid almost 100% of the time. The chance of partner having an opening bid without a control in hearts or spades is almost zero. Therefore I expect the auction to continue ... 4 or 4 and then I will bid 4NT. Even if partner admits to no aces and that is 5 I have a reasonably safe pass with such good diamonds.
