That's intriguing.  As an extra hint, bear in mind that a much more powerful and spiritually aware Time Lord, K'anpo, appears to have actually either known or planned the appearance of his next incarnation in advance, and the High Council were clearly able to determine what form to give the Doctor in his second regeneration (though he dithered to much to have a direct say).  Even that aspect of Romana's regeneration, though badly handled, was interesting, suggesting that a Time Lord making a non-traumatic regeneration can make conscious choices.

It's a cool article and an awesome theory. I love little things like this that the fans piece together because I'm better it wasn't in the minds of the writers at the time, but it does make sense.
