Frankly, it could be easier if they bid spades. The auction I dread (that could very easily happen here) is 1-1; 2-3NT. Now show your 6-5 without either getting passed in 4 with 6 on or getting too high when partner's non-minimum is a minimum, more misfit, non-minimum.

A limitation for novice/beginner playing natural NT responses.

I don't see the problem if you are I/A playing 2NT as Moderateur / Ingberman or similar here, except perhaps if 2 is non-forcing. After 3NT, 4 shows this hand and is unlikely to be passed. After the more probable 2NT, 3 shows the same and is clearly a game forcing maximum.
