I can only assume FFn have decided that grumpy authors are no longer worth listening to. I wonder when that happened?
So... ignoring the in-universe rationalization I just posted: we regard certain continuua as off-limits out of respect for the authors' wishes. If we respect the authors, then we probably shouldn't be using any versions of their characters. "GRRM wouldn't mind, because this badfic clone of Daenerys is from the show!" sounds more like rules-lawyering than actual respect, so it's probably best to stay out of adaptations as well.
