I, too, have had it in practice: five aces plus the queen of trumps.
Craig Zastera's bidding problem: AQJ4 98653 T9 KJ
I play something similar: (1)-2 or (1)-2 shows five or more hearts and four or more spades (not 54). We do not call it by any name.
And then there was Eric Murray (1928 – 19 May 2018), whose contributions in a bidding poll would read “3NT. Game try.” and “6NT. Slam try.”
Is this Lavinthal?
Yes, Lavinthal is a preference rather than a command; the American term ‘suit preference’ fits the bill.
Trevor Morris's bidding problem: x T9xx QTxx Axxx
5, assuming 4 is Leaping Michaels (else 5)
Craig Biddle's bidding problem: T874 A2 AJT5 KT2
Plus the two aces and no queens.
5 of a Major asks for a stopper in unbid suit?
You must mean: five of the major asks for a control – not a stopper, such as QJx – in the unbid suit.
Is this Lavinthal?
Suit preference is known as ‘Lavinthal’ in Europe, or at least in some countries.
whom to blame!
Two and a half quick tricks plus a five-card spade suit is not ‘crap’. But of course, if a pair opens light, they must use heavier game and slam tries.
Defense against Multi 2!D Defense
Multi usually includes a stronger notrump that that, at least 21–22 (which occurs about half as often as 20–21), as I play 24+.
