What you posted officially states that Dragon Ball Super, Toriyama's new story, is the canonical sequel to Dragon Ball, which it is. Your headcanon is that Toyotaro's interpretation of the story is above all in terms of continuity, which is solely a matter of opinion.
This timeline is specific to the manga, because it outlines the manga with pictures and panels from the manga only. It does not involve the anime production of DBS.
DBS manga by Toyotarou with Akira Toriyama credited as the original author is the sequel to Toriyama's original manga. Interpretation of this or that is fan guesswork at best and has absolutely nothing to do with what is considered canonical officially.
GT is official but not considered the canonical or part of the main continuity. It is for all intents and purposes a sequel to the DBZ anime and films since it was produced by Toei. Shueisha has never labeled GT the same way it has done for the DBS manga.
None of the fans get to decide what is considered canonical. Shueisha and Toriyama do. And if Toriyama is editing and approving Toyotarou's storyboards, and if Shueisha is putting out promotional timelines like this using specific terminology like canonical, then nothing is considered filler and everything that transpires in the manga is exactly what transpires in the main continuity.
