Not really. If we examine Orcarina of Time we can see two timelines. Skyloft are the event before OOT. In the Adult Timeline after OOT Zelda and Hyrule move on without Link(sent back to a child life). Then in Wind Waker we learn OLD Hyrule was flooded. Form the next two games (on GBA/DS) we know that Zelda and his pirate friend set out to a NEW Hyrule. This is Possibly where Twilight Princess takes place. So City in the sky is in New Hyrule and Skyloft is in the old Hyrule still flooded. People were hinting at a Sky Temple years ago. I remember reading a walkthrough for OOT where a guy made the joke "this is where you can get the golden wings for Epona and fly to the secret sky temple." I think once SS come out it might clear a few timeline issues up. Who knows I may be wrong.
Actually TP takes place in the child timeline, while WW in the adult one, so TP Hyrule hasn't been flooded. TP comes after MM, therefore, child timeline and WW comes on the adult timeline as it is stated on the opening, telling the story of how adult Link defeated Ganon, but didn't return on the second time he apeared (because he came back to the past and went to Termina)
I think that the City in the Sky is a little hint about SS. In TP Shad (that scholar guy who was part of the resistance) talked about ancient people from the Sky that came down and founded Hyrule. When Link finds that cannon that takes him to the city in the Sky, Fyer told him that that cannon was ancient technology (made from the people from Skyloft, pherhaps?). I think we'll have to wait untill SS comes out to know more, but I also think that TP was already setting grounds for the upcoming game.
