I think that this is a perfectly good question and have no idea why it has been closed. The only person to have provided a reason for his/her close-vote as a comment is Fumble. He too has stated that it is "Not Constructive" and yet has voted "Not a real question". Furthermore, the commenters can't make up their mind on why the Ars headline is right either.
I voted against it. I don't recall whether I came down on NC or NARQ - I always have trouble with those two - but I voted against it basically because it's a headline, which to my mind makes any generalization questionable. "Hard cases make bad law" -- as I think your answer makes clear.
