I do that a lot, so I'd expect some people to not want to install roms directly but package them too, even for their private use. I know that's probably not the most general case, but I don't know why it shouldn't be supported.
I see your point, but you are talking about private packages, whereas we
have to decide about official distro ones. It's difficult to foresee
everything private packagers can do. :)
On the other hand, we could keep the /usr/share/... entry for the sake
of Manu's reply concerning automated download:
I think we discussed this already some ago, and IIRC the consensus was
that it should go in a separate mame-extra-download package ( which
could also handle other mame ressources like artwork YMMV )
which is a good idea IMO.
