Hear Hear! Yes, those are exactly the reasons they never did the humans. It's the same reason they've resisted them for so long in the Alien and Predator lines (although that does seem to be changing somewhat now).From what I remember, Neca never had any plans for making any of the human characters. For some reason they insisted on only making apes, and seemed very resistant to even considering humans. They had very high expectations for the line, and from the beginning they talked about it as a dream come true of sorts, but yet they botched it with bad character selection (2 Zaius's back to back for example), and a total refusal to make human characters. They blamed the franchise being too old to succeed with their target audience, which may have been an issue, but I think the refusal to make Taylor was an issue as well. I personally think in retrospect Neca should have stuck to the first movie before delving into the sequels. I believe they tried to do too much too soon and it came back to bite them. It sucks we will never have the full cast. For all the talk about how expensive tooling is, sometimes they waste it on the dumbest things.
