Josh, there is a mechanism. Five votes to close will close a question. Five votes to reopen will reopen it.
(If you don't have enough points, you won't be able to vote either way, so the mechanism will be "invisible" to you.)
That said, even with the question reopened, I'm not sure how much more input you'll get. After reading your question, the first thing that popped into my head was "failure to adjust," and that answer has already been provided. Who knows? Maybe someone will think of something that'll knock our collective socks off, but I wouldn't expect a flurry of inspired responses.
One thing that has often surprised me is how some folks try very, very hard to get a question reopened, even when two or three very good answers have already been provided, along with some helpful comments as well. Closure is not necessarily an indictment on the asker; sometimes, there's simply not much more to say.
As for "too localized," don't read too much into that, either. That's just one of five choices the voters have from a multiple choice list. It could mean that your question was "too localized," or it could mean that "too localized" was the nearest fit to whatever was motivating the individuals who were voting to close.
Here's a screen shot, showing what voters are presented with when voting to close. Some questions don't fit nicely into one of these five catagories, but that doesn't mean the question shouldn't be closed nonetheless.
