Looking at this stuff, I wouldn't mind seeing a Wind Waker-style game where Link is a teenager. He looks pretty cool.

It would be nice to have a Zelda game where we see Link physically grow up, not OOT style but gradually over the time of the game. It would fit in nicely with the 'upgrade your equipment' system from SS.

Would be nice, but a little difficult to implement. Also adult link in these looks horrible - he reminds me of the thoroughly dense Link from the Philips CD-I games >.>

Some of the images do appear in the Hyrule Historia but most of them don't so it's okay.

I also agree, an older looking Link would have been nice. I recon if they had gone with a more mature looking Link in the original it would sold better.
