Sorry if im wrong but arent Regenerative shields an advanced deflector shield system used by the Borg and other species. The basic principle of regenerative shielding was to quickly analyze an attacking weapon's frequency and then modulate shield frequency to increase damage mitigation without depleting shield energy.
It does seem as if the Borg are using some sort of high-specificity interferometric system functioning similarly to what you described, but I can't see any particular reason why a system with such operating principles would be tagged as "regenerative." I think Mr. Brown's above comparison to regenerative braking probably represents a functioning principle which would sensibly deserve the tag.
