We ought to consider these to be questionable because their canonizations could not have been infallible.

Yes, that's true. They couldn't be celebrated liturgically in the West, but that doesn't mean someone can't have a private devotion to them. That said, there's still a spiritual danger involved in doing so, which would have to be gauged by the devotee and their confessor/director.
"The Heart of Jesus is closer to you when you suffer, than when you are full of joy." - St. Margaret Mary Alacoque

Put not your trust in princes: In the children of men, in whom there is no salvation. - Ps. 145:2-3

"For there shall be a time, when they will not endure sound doctrine; but, according to their own desires, they will heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears: And will indeed turn away their hearing from the truth, but will be turned unto fables." - 2 Timothy 4:3-4
