Non-canon has nothing going for it except for compatibility, but has nothing against it: basically, it has no development but neither is there any development for any parings with the same characters, for example, KakaAnko or IruShizu.
Eh, I don't see KibaHina as crack... its true that Hinata's feelings for Naruto are stopping it from happening in canon (and the fact that Kiba hasn't really expressed romantic interest in her), but say if Hinata were to confess her feelings and end up kindly let down by Naruto, then in time she could find another. This could happen in canon, it probably wouldn't get a tremendous amount of focus, but it wouldnt seem entirely
off the wall if in a epologue/time-skip we see KibaHina or even ShinoHina. *shrugs* I just see it as a fanon pairing, because there is an established bond of friendship and trust between them already.
And just in case you say it, I don't think Hinata would wallow forever in self-pity if she doesn't end up with Naruto. Especially if she were able to confess her feelings, because she would have that, which is a huge step for her. And she'd be happy to see Naruto with a girl he loves. That's how I see Hinata. She, just like Sakura or Naruto, has the potential to love another.
