I think the female link thing is a why not kind of thing
and controversy wise it gets attention and female buyers
the reason Zelda is never the protagonist is because Link is the one destined to always be the hero
to be honest I'd a spinoff game for Sheik
tales of what he/she did while hiding from Ganon and waiting for Link in OOT
The reason not to do it is because it is boring and pointless.
Your OoT playable Zelda idea is way better then a "standard" Zelda game where Link just happens to be female.
To be fair, they already did this with Hyrule Warriors.
And wasn't that better then if they had gone with a female Link instead? The answer is yes.
Making a female Link is one of those things that probably wont affect gameplay or story. Just to say they did it and make a few female fams happy. It was already confirmed to not happen but way brought back up after so much attention. Complain enough and maybe someone will cancel the idea of a female Link. People will call you sexist and bash the idea, but maybe it'll work
