@ramzawilliamson: The reason they're not canon is because the CD-i Zeldas were not made by Nintendo. Nintendo was in talks with Philips about a cd drive attachment similiar to Sega CD. Nintendo gave Philips the rights to develop a couple of Zelda games, but backed out of the cd attachment. Zeldas not made by Nintendo technically do not exist. Except of course the exceptional Minish Cap co-produced by Capcom. Even still, Nintendo was heavily involved in that one.
