Star Trek Discovery Specials - Should the "bonus scene" be included?

Star Trek Discovery Specials included a "Bonus Scene" as s00e01 with the 4 new "Short Treks" following. Today user "Lego2006" removed this Bonus scene and shifted all the "Short Treks" up (without correcting the images).

Before correcting, given web series rules are a little squishier than broadcast and I've done very little editing, I would like to know if there is/can be an official position on whether bonus scenes like this should be included in Specials or not.

The scene feels a little like a deleted scene and a little like a post-credits (or next scene) teaser. It was shown on CBS's official all access site as well as youtube. While it certainly isn't on the same level as the "Short Trek"'s, it seems like a notable scene that meets the requirements to be included in the specials. It was originally added from a request to via the forum:

I'm wandering the same thing. Noticed today that the Specials changed numbering because Specials Episode number 01 was removed and then ran in to this post. Though about editing it back but decided it was unwise to start an edit war and when I searched the forums to make sure a request hasn't been submitted yet I found this post. Very interested in the outcome of this.

The first special should absolutely not have been deleted. Violates the whole "Under no circumstances should items be blanked out" rule. Since the original special was already brought up previously and added - if there was further discussion about it, it should have been done here instead of a user taking it upon him/herself to do it. The user is clearly trying to get the numbering here to match the Scene's release of the specials -- which is not a good enough reason to delete the entry. It should be put back.
