They've fleshed her out and have given her too much back story and general competence to never return to the character again. Besides, regardless of your choice, we never see her die.
A playable Clem wouldn't work. Making decisions/choices as a child would be boring and too limiting, and an older Clem would require a shift in the story by several years, beyond the time line of the comic even which I doubt TellTale will be given the creative freedom to do.
Regardless as to whether or not Molly had a good back story it is impossible for her to be the protagonist of the next season as she can die in episode 4 should you leave Clemintine in the house and fail to save her from the walker (although if you look into the wiki on the walking dead it does state that it is unknown as to whether or not she survived the walkers grouping around her.
