Thanks Rob...good answer.  I take it from your response that controllers are able to exercise "emergency authority" and do whatever is deemed (by the controller) necessary to resolve the emergency, similar to "emergency authority" we have as pilots.

Glad to hear controllers are not (in this instance anyway) restricted to one or two written options only (as defined by the FAA) and therefore prohibited from using their best judgement and experience.

Pilots should always be monitoring 121.5. It's in the regs somewhere.
