I still don't like the idea of there being a proper timeline but I suppose anybody who does now knows what it is. If you ask me, the only games directly related are still OoT and MM. I would probably put OoT parallel to Skyward Sword too because even though they relate in some ways there are still some major differences and I still consider OoT to be the first of a timeline (nothing before it).

theres still a major paradox right at ocarina of time and majoras mask. if he goes to termina then everything done in oot is rendered invalid. the timeline even though its official still seems fucked up.
Bobbo, the paradox is the exact reason why the two split timelines exist. It would be impossible for Zelda to send Link back to his original time and undo all that came after without undoing the action of sending him back in the first place, so the universe split into two distinct timelines.
Also, since the failure of Link is such a significant event, it creates another radically different timeline. Any other divergences from these three sequences of events produce differences so small that they are not worth noting. At least, that's my take on it.

Yes, and considering that the hero could fail in any one of the games, there could be any number of splits and different paths between timelines. If Link failed in Majora's Mask there would be no world left at all and thus no further sequels.
in the Wind Waker it states that the gods would flood the land with sea water for some reason, so they told everyone to climb to the top of the mountains. only problem is that there is only one mountain in Hyrule
