There's no evidence that they retconned it, though; Hyrule Historia wasn't written by the people who wrote the stories for the games. As I said, their research was lacking, and we're seeing now that Nintendo agrees that the Oracle games had no business being placed where they were. It's possible that Nintendo could've retconned the Oracles games as being the origin of LA Link and separated it from AlttP back when they came out, and that would've been okay, if a little confusing... but that didn't happen, and I can't think of any real reason to try connecting these games. When the Oracles games came out, the argument everyone was having was whether the Link in it was from Majora's Mask or The Adventure of Link.
