I'm sure the fact that Orci co-developed the storyline to Countdown helped out IDW in that regard.
As for novels, the destruction of Romulus will have to be acknowledged when they get to 2387, even if it is just some off-hand reference to "the recent destruction of Romulus." In fact, that could very well be the most the opic will be covered.
