In that article is a link to a recent version of the Draft CPM
document with the options that are being wordsmithed before
the final tweak gets presented to the WRC in November
At the moment it still has options A, B, and C.

There is also a similarly recent writeup from the ITU-R itself at
which gives a deeper story about the lack of vote in 2012

    to ensure that all the technical options have been fully addressed
    in further studies related to the issue.  It was necessary because
    the decision was not only of a technical nature but had some
    regulatory and legal consequences.
