I've given it a lot of thought and have decided to cast a vote to reopen the question. Because of my moderator status, this means that the question was immediately reopened.
My reasoning is that the initial closure as primarily opinion based is incorrect. There is a factual, real world consequence to what the OP is asking about. However, as RoboKaren indicates, it is a difficult question to answer and it could possibly be closed as "too broad." I can see a case for and against.
I have also removed the various edits from the question that revolved around the discussion of whether or not to close the question. If you would like to add any of those comments back in, feel free. Just try to keep the post focused on the question and leave the discussion about closure to comments and, better yet, Meta.
I would also like to note that I do not take lightly the decision to override votes from five community members. There were two votes to reopen, indicating that there was certainly some controversy about the issue.
If the community decides to close the question once again, I will not override that decision.
