I can't get the link to work.
This also leads me to believe that burning a hive, bees and all, may be an outdated method of AFB control.
In someways it's outdated as some consider it wasteful of resources (I see the word economics in the journal and study titles) but it's certainly quick, easy, and effective, and that's what matters to inspectors, as well as keepers who can't afford to take on risks associated with "nearly-complete suppression" or "continuing light infection of AFB which came to an end within three months." Of the 2 control methods you mention in your "short version" sentence: Personally I would never shake an infected colony onto drawn comb.
Some states (I think Md is one) have the capability of irradiating equipment but I really don't know what that entails and the inspector would probably insist the colony get closed up and burned, or the bees irradiated (killed) too but I don't know.
