Well, considering how deep that rule is burnt into the myth among fans, they'll probably address it and let the writers bullshit their way out of that corner.
Well River did give up all her regenerations to save the Doctor in "Let's Kill Hitler". That's likely a extra 9 or 10 lives right there.
It can't be a straightforward transfer of regens, though, or he'd give them right back. Presumably he would be giving her fewer regenerations than he'd be losing. Therefore it makes sense that he didn't receive a whole lot of regens from her, and possibly not even a whole one.
