I don't think you get my point: there is no need for Link's character to change at all. A non-binary Link can just be the same as Link usually is with no change in character, aside from what pronouns they use. And it's complete bullshit that Link would somehow be less charming if they'd be non-binary.That Link as a male don't seem to mind being treated as a girl, says a lot of about the character, which would be completely lost, when you play as another gender! You lose this kind of characterization, when you just mindless would be able to change genders. Would it work in BotW? Maybe. Would Link be as charming without rewrites? No!
Again i don't say, that it should not be an option, but that it would cost extra work, money and time to keep the subtle characterization of Link in between different gender option.
If you mean that Link would need to face discrimination cause of their gender: they wouldn't. The Zelda world isn't the same as our world, everyone could just be cool with non-binary people already.
