I appreciate your disappointment that this elaborate fantasy you concocted where everything with an Alien logo on it was somehow canonical, has been all for naught, but Fox owns the thing and they call the shots.
FOX has been calling the shots for years, and you were singing a very different tune when they were saying other things were canon as well.
Not that I'm complaining, your new EU-inclusive outlook is pretty refreshing and I heartily support it.
I'm waiting to see how much of the "old EU" the new stuff actually wipes out. I remember people talking about how the DH Press novels or the 2009 relaunch comics would abandon the "old EU", and then they ended up doing the exact opposite and directly referenced the old EU. Whoops!
I wouldn't be surprised if they took the new Star Wars "canon" approach, where old stuff is "not canon" but could be referenced and reactivated as "canon" by new stuff. I'd be pretty okay with that I think.
