Psyching a precision nebulous 1D opener

All ACBL charts including super chart prohibit the psyching of an artificial opening bid. For reference, here is a link to these restrictions.

This is not limited to forcing bids, you can't psyche Flannery for example.

Opinions: Does the precision nebulous 1D count as an artificial opening bid? Does opening T8542 983 A82 K2 with a nebulous 1D qualify as a psyche?

I think it does, and is therefore not a legal bid in the ACBL (See Board 104 from the USBC semi-finals). To my knowledge, no director was called, implying all the players thought it to be normal competitive bridge.

Thoughts?
