Except for the parts that got changed that he didn't vet....

One might argue that since Okrand performed the play without making any
changes (except for changes due to changing characters in the play) that he
has vetted it as well. He made no corrections to the text.

However, I don't consider it canon either.

I only consider stuff translated/provided by Okrand alone as Canon. KCC,
Talk Now, paq'batlh, Monopoly, etc are works created with his input, so
they may be "correct", and may contain bits of canon, but they shouldn't be
taken as canon on the whole.
