If one goes down that route, I think the appropriate way is to first explicitly call SVD and then one can proceed from there with Tikhonov, damped SVD, truncated SVD or any other regularization, one can use generalised SVD if some pseudo-norm is preferable to stabilize the inverse. I don't see it as possible to present one single regularisation as the _right_ one for all cases, when one gets to such problems there is always some implicit (or explicit) knowledge as to what type of regularisation is appropriate that has to be taken into account.
