I must remark that I do not really like this philosophy of "any technique goes for any attack".

If this was the case, it would be sufficcient to learn only one technique (as is goes for everything ), instead of bothering to learn many different.
Of course you can drag your uke into the technique you want, but will it be smooth and fluent?
Of course you can add some preraratory movements to get uke into throwing position, but will the thechnique then still be sensible? ( If the time of leading uke is too long a natural uke will drop out sometime )
And finally - if you like it or not - there are definitely techniques which do not work on some specific attack !
