Unpopular D&D opinion: The only canon that really matters is the story you make together at the table, I like to read through sourcebooks for inspiration, but I don’t consider myself beholden to any of it, if going against canon makes for a fun experience.

I don’t think that’s very unpopular =) IMO, that's the main purpose behind setting material for a TTRPG. Any other use is secondary. My unpopular opinion is that such settings shouldn't have an amalgamated evolving canon, even if used for transmedia purposes. It's unnecessary.
