I personally think that continuity is only important when dealing with historical events (regardless if it's real or fictional) and making sure everything all fits together, but canon only means whether a particular work is official or not by the property holder.

In the case of TOS and Star Trek XI, both will be considered canon even if they have different continuities.

IMO, since the split between Paramount's TV and movie divisions into separate companies owned by separate corporations (CBS and Viacom) who hate each other passionately, the days of Star Trek existing in a single shared universe are over...there is now the Star Trek Television Universe and the Star Trek Movie Universe, with Star Trek XI being the point where they diverge.
