And nobody really cares what's "canon" anyway.
CBS cares
I think they care about what's canon and what isn't a lot less than fans do. Trek doesn't have a canon police like Star Wars, and TPTB are happy to let different tie-ins do their own thing.
Whether they care about it or not isn't really the point. The point is that they are still the authority on what's canon and what isn't, not the novel writers (which was what the OP brought up). On many occasions a novel writer has been hampered by edicts from CBS as to what subject matter is appropriate to write about. Whether it's that strict anymore, I'm not sure.
