They are canonical in the Tanakh, as Troy said. The issue isn't 
canonicity but versification. You can have canonical non-verses (and for 
that matter non-canonical verses) in OSIS using the canonical attribute.

Some translations make psalm titles verse 1, some translations include 
them along with verse 1, and some translations make them a title prior 
to verse 1.
