Yes, as canonical as "quab jee nah geel." That's the canon of /Star 
Trek,/ not the canon of Okrand. They are not the same thing.

Okrand has occasionally retconned something from S/tar Trek,/ but no way 
has he done this to "all the other stuff presented as Klingon on the 
show." I'd say he'd probably be more likely to retcon or confirm 
something by Qov, since he knows her and certain parties on this list 
will pester him about any perceived problem, but that's not a rubber stamp.
