The issue here is that the story is already written.
Joss put it in there: Peggy's alive; Steve doesn't try to contact her. Yeah, the Russos can have him change his mind, but trying to pretend that *this* scene "didn't happen" or "isn't canon" is dodging the issue, and is frankly an insult to Joss Whedon's judgment on the matter.
It's done; move on. That's the point.
