The RTD Time Lord Regeneration PoseTM
was introduced with 9 -10, not 10-11. Ironically, it almost made sense there, as the streamers could be seen as dumping the huge amount of excess energy he had to get rid of and the fact that Rose, despite humans being considerably less robust than Time Lords, was able to continue to operate for some time after absorbing the Tardis suggests that there are limited prompt physical effects. It was continuing to use it completely different situations, when historically the nature of the regeneration has (unsurprisingly) changed with each fatal injury.
