-->In the 2011 Levitz series Brainiac 5 is well aware of the 'Flashpoint' event and is deep into trying to find some way to resume time-travel and investigate events in the 21st century, a team of Legionnaires is also trapped in the 21st century and is dubbed Legion Lost, whether the Legion is aware that reality has been rewritten was never made all that clear however. The subsequent appearances of the Legion in Grant Morrison's Action Comics and Justice League United are debatable as the events and team line-ups seen there are at odds with the previously established Legion and might be taken as some alternate timeline versions.

I don't think it necessarily negates those experiences (except for JLU), but we'll see when we learn what Saturn Girl's mission in the past is supposed to be.

--> Yes that's right, and as with current Superman developments it's best not to think on it too much and just accept that a rough approximation of the years in question did take place....

I believe the cut-off point is Great Darkness Saga. That was where they cut it off when they reintroduced the Retroboot Legion, and that should still be in continuity until DC says differently. And this was before the meddling of Flashpoint.

I think this is the most appropo cut off point. It ends on the Legion's biggest story. It is also the last and biggest Superman-in-the-Legion appearance until Crisis. You'd probably need to address how Quislet is a member, but even Legion of 3 Worlds seems to negate Magic Wars when you see Black Witch as the leader of the Sorcerer's World (which was destroyed during Magic Wars). Also, it is easier to keep "Great Darkness Saga" in print as one of the foundational Legion stories.
