Ganon also went down in a blaze of glory in LttP, so one could assume he was reduced to ashes then as well. Still I guess if one wanted to think that it could fit to LoZ/AoL that is there prefrence, but it isn't something that I would agree with. The Oracle series also had Link sailing on a boat, and Ganon was defeated in that game as well, but it really isn't where I would like to place LA after either.
I think placing LA after LttP makes the most sense, due to the Hyrulian prophecy (there was no other prophecy besides Zelda's in OoT but it wasn't really known as the Hyrulian prophecy), the same artwork, Link was known as the Legendary Hero in LttP, the games came out one after the other which was a comment made by Tri-Enforcer, and the nightmares that Link fought can all be found in LttP and LA, and no other Link in the Zelda series has fought the all of the forms that Dethl took up besides the LttP Link and the LA Link. For example look:
LoZ: Gel, Lanmola, Moldorm, and Ganon, but no Agahnim.
AoL: None are present.
LttP: Gel, Lanmola, Moldorm, Agahnim, and Ganon so all are present and accountable for.
LA: Gel, Moldorm, and Lanmolda, but no Agahnim and Ganon present except for in nightmare form.
OoT: Ganon is the only one present.
MM: None are present.
OoS/OoA: Ganon and perhaps maybe Agahnim as I have never heard of a confimed name for the wizard in the Dancing Dragon Dungeon, but stil none others are present.
FS: None are present.
FSA: Moldorm and Ganon are the only ones present.
TWW: None are present (considering that Ganondorf was only in his gerudo form and not his demonic form of Ganon, which is what the nightmare shapeshifts into)
TMC: Haven't played it yet.
Still if one considers that the last form of Dethl, is a shapeshifting form of Vaati, then it would throw this whole idea out of water, but I don't think that Dethl and Vaati are the same.
