I read that too, and it is obvious that George was having a joke. Im sure he's not entirely concerned about what happens in EU, but he definitely knows about the NJO, as these are clearly documented as his decisions :
*Chewie being killed
*Anakin Solo getting killed
at the end of the day, people either love or hate the NJO. Overall, by the end of it, it has prolonged EU rather than shortened it - which would have been the case if authors kept recycling plots about superweapons and long lost imperial military masterminds...
As ROTS will pass us by soon, the post NJO onslaught will begin. Hopefully more fans will get back into the EU, even those who gave NJO a miss
