I would say neither of the options listed. It also makes it difficult to vote in polls like this because it is an A or B optioned poll. A "C" like a neither would help. Many people will pick the best of two options, but that doesn't necessarily guarantee accurate results of what people think. That's just an aside...
Personally, I would make the system something like...
-- Questions close (aka get archived) a month after being asked regardless of what takes place. A month would also coincide with automatic MHO's so I believe that makes sense. It also keeps thing relevant (refer to No Opinion section) like the original intention of closing questions was. The vast majority of questions die out by a month and things start to change / lose relevance anyway.
-- If an MHO is picked, I would say perhaps close the question after a certain amount of time... Maybe 48 hours... Maybe 5 days for an upper possible limit. That way the people who want to get in the word of advice to people who already selected MHO still have a chance. However, MHO'd questions generally happen when people have an answer to their question, so they should be closed faster than a month.
-- Get rid of private opinions. They are pointless with the PM system and we also have an anon system in place if people feel embarassed to share their answer. All private opinions do is annoy people for the most part.
-- Reinstal downvote (as they are doing). Reinstall question follows (as they are supposedly doing).
All this talk makes me feel like a politician describing his plans for the future LOL1

I'd rather have them stop making useless updates in general. But yeah, I pick B.4
