My question is, how do we know when it's meant to be connected timelines and when it's a simple easter egg? Sometimes the easter eggs can mess with things too.
I think the developers intended it to be based on where you want it which is why, other than OoT and a games before it, there aren't that many specific, detailed references to other branches. If say you think it should be in the AT because of the WW references, then the other subtle references to the CT and DT can easily be explained away and vice versa.
It's really up to you, pick your favorite timeline and put BotW there. The whole marketing of BotW was about doing things your way, your path. Mine happens to be the CT because it has, in my opinion, the 2 best games post split in MM and TP and there are enough references in BotW for it to work out.
