Since this game is player choice-dominated, they would likely piss off a lot of people if they would already declare certain outcomes as canon. They obviously had to with KOTOR but I doubt we'll have anything that concret with SWTOR for a while.

Charnus would make sense I guess, but what's with Viktus? I don't recall him being that important (or successful) at all to be even considered for the Dark Council. He was also more involved with Diplomacy, which would make him a candidate for the Sphere of Expansion and Diplomacy, if anything, but that Sphere is currently being headed by Ravage.
Well kill him will also piss off people, just like whether Jadus/Zhorrid as canon will both make some people unhappy. He's perfect for Military Offense.

Viktus didn't make much appearance in the game, but since he was in charge of one of the most important planets of the Core World, Alderaan's business, it's safe to say he's a quite important Sith.

The others sound like good choices imo.
This is Star Wars, everything ends up having a canon outcome sooner or later. I mean, heck, for KOTOR, there's basically a canon dialog response for each conversation you participate in FCOL.

Yes, but not while this game is still up and running and might alienate players because they find their personal story to be invalid, just because of Word of God says so.

At some point, I'm pretty sure there will be canonical interpretations of the characters, but certainly not now.

Darth Gravus was considered for a seat on the dark council by Darth Mortis after Imperial victory over Taris to replace Darth Hadra. At the same time, Darth Marr elected Darth Karrid, a former pupil to Gnost-Dural and Malgus. But most of the council favor Gravus due to Karrid being an alien. Long story short, due to sith infighting Gravus lost, Karrid won, but at the end was killed by Theron Shan. -From the novel 'Star Wars: The Old Republic: Annihilation

They'll be alienated regardless of when it happens.

Obviously, but better later than right now while they are still playing and paying.

Doesn't Jadus survive no matter what, though? He goes on the run, potentially, but there's nothing stopping him from still being part of the story, per se. Granted, the same can't be said for Zhorrid, but I don't see how she'd be especially hard to write out. I got the impression that whether she survives or not, she's not on the Council anymore.

I am pretty sure that he can be killed by the player.

In that novel Gravus was reduced to a moron.
