Delayed Support after a Positive Response as Key Card Ask

After a positive response to 1♣ and a raise of the transfer response is a key card asking bid. (ie. 1♣-1♥-1♠) Well after opener shows delayed support below 3NT, it would be convenient to show key cards at that point. For example after 1♣-1♥-1NT-2♣-2♠ key card would apply upto 4♦. For responder they still have to use the Step above four of trump(kickback) to ask for key cards.
It's that simple.
