In some ways it's a shame the first DC run has so many problems, as including them would go some way toward explaining how TWOK can occur in March of 2285, but TVH can take place in 2286, even though TVH begins only around three months or so after TWOK, and TFF in 2287 (if we believe the Okuda Chronology, that is).
I've always half-suspected that those dates for the movies were the Okudas' way of allowing for the comics to exist--but only if you felt like including them.

Those stories weren't canon, of course, and the Okudas couldn't acknowledge them in a Chronology that only stuck to canon, but there was enough space for them to occur...or not.
