As do you.

Which has never been the discussion. The discussion is what could happen, not what will.

Premises that were present in the movie itself, rather than a deleted scene.

Sure, just not with stuff that's solely connected to the Captain America franchise and not the least bit with the Avengers franchise.

Deleted scenes are "bonus canon," or "enhanced canon." If a filmmaker considers them unnecessary or just plain wrong, he leaves them out completely --- i.e., no deleted scenes, no director's cuts, no DVD/BR extras. He just leaves them on the cutting room floor and never lets the general public get wind of them.
Not really. Deleted scenes are included because they're interesting, or fun to watch, but they don't really matter.

There is an alternate ending scene where Maria Hill has a conference with the Council, a scene that can't possibly be canon alongside the actual ending in the movie. Its included not because its bonus canon, its there because its good footage they wanted to share.

The opening of TIH includes Cap's body frozen inside an iceberg, something that is ignored in CATFA. It's on the Blu-Ray, yet doesn't matter.
