Clearly, some really long-time Trek fans—who knows how many, but including fans of over forty years, such as me—really don't care if a planet named Delta Vega exists near or next to Vulcan in the nu-timeline.
And in the Prime timeline too - an Enterprise-E security officer mentioned spending time there in the novel Typhon Pact: Paths of Disharmony
. Similarly, the Delta Vega at the edge of the galaxy is in the alternate reality also - Kirk and Spock stranded Gary Mitchell there in the comic adaptaion of "Where No Man Has Gone Before", as they did in The Original Series.
That's fine, too. Trust me, my head's not exploding.
Given the obsessiveness of Trek fans, dealing with the "issue" non-canonically, i.e. in the Lit, was a foregone conclusion.
