I'm currently reading the TMP novelization, and am gussing that, being penned by GR himself, it was immune to the ban on references.
Well, it was written in 1979, ten years before "the memo". (It is partially quoted in the lettercol of DC Comics Series II issue #1.)

Richard Arnold made the point, several times in his column in "Star Trek Communicator", that the additional material in ST:TMP's novelization, even though penned by GR himself, was "not canon".
