IMO the different continuities should remain separate entities of the same franchise. There's just so much out there. As far as the movieverse is concerned, I do not agree with the comics and novels being labeled as canon. This really hinders the writing process for the films, and may prevent new and interesting material from being seen. The comics and novels would serve a better purpose under a "what if" rule. Sort of how JJ Abrams Star Trek films are accepted as canon, but under an alternate reality that has no bearing on the TNG/DS9/VGR timelines.
