^Again, the tie-ins are not technically canonical. Whatever "oversight" there may be from Orci, they're still largely the creations of people other than Abrams's Supreme Court. It's a mistake to assume they're on the same level as the movie canon. Until the actual movies contradict something from canon before 2233, we can't draw any indisputable conclusions from what the tie-ins propose.
Not that I doubt what you're saying, but I've not kept up with the interviews and statements. Where did they talk about the canonicity of their tie-ins?

This is the latest comment on the matter from January, while talking about Countdown

How canon is this?

Orci: We get asked that a lot, and itís our understanding that canon is that which is filmed. As a strict Constitutionalist, I donít support a change in the definition of canon during my tenure. Perhaps future courts can take up the issue, but in the meantime the comics are as close to canon as you can get without being on film.
