How ridiculous is this takeout double?

In a recent general poll http://bridgewinners.com/article/view/double-trouble-360-atb-2-k7hhzkzgh7/ North faced this bidding problem at matchpoinrts:

In my comment on the original poll I described a takeout double as "ridiculous".  But while some people agree with this assessment, others have used adjectives such as "aggressive", "a little light" or "tolerable".  What do you think?

In this particular situation, please state which honour (if any) you would require instead of 10 to turn this hand into a minimum for a takeout double:

None - the actual hand is already non-minimum for a takeout double.
None - the actual hand is about minimum for a takeout double.
J instead of 10 would turn this hand into a minimum takeout double.
Q instead of 10 would turn this hand into a minimum takeout double.
K instead of 10 would turn this hand into a minimum takeout double.
A instead of 10 would turn this hand into a minimum takeout double.
Even with A instead of 10, this hand isn't strong enough for a takeout double..
