I'd be upset at an "official" word given of anything Trek that un-canonized something I hold dear. If "The Inner Light" were suddenly considered non-canon I'd be a wreck. Sure I can still enjoy the episode but the OCD in me would nag, and nag in the back of my mind telling me "you know none of this ever happened right? It doesn't mean anything".I can respect that position, but I still don't quite understand it. Think of a Trek episode or movie that you really, really like. If one of the Trek executives claimed that it wasn't canonical, would your opinion of that episode/movie change because it wasn't canonical? If not, why would your opinion of something you like differ because a Trek executive says that it is canonical?
Unfortunately that is how I see canon. Like I said I wish I was as carefree about the canon issue as other people that don't care what is or isn't included.
