Actually, many npc's didn't react to the 3 day limit. It's mostly restricted to Clock Town, and even then behavior is inconsistent.
Additionally, the fact npc's are mostly recycled from OoT give it an "it was all a dream" effect. I still can't tell if it was canon or no.
MM is probably the best story telling in the entire LoZ series.
Also SMB2 was only a dream and SMB3 was just a play by some accounts, not that it makes a difference either way.
