Not all gambling games are mechanical however, for example mahjong (Nichibutsu), video poker (IGT) and video slot games (Konami, Aristocrat). Disabling mechanical games will also remove pinball machines from the list, and they have every right to be considered an arcade game. There is nothing stating that MAME can only emulate 'video' arcade games, unless you're still in the Windows 98 era, where gambling games were actually removed from the official build.

Removing certain games from MAME or emulation in general only makes it harder to fully document and test CPUs and other chips, since every game makes its own special use of each chip. Besides, if you remove these games from MAME, you end up with crap like MFME and PinMAME which both used source code from very early MAME builds anyway. Maybe the acronym should be changed to reflect the word 'Amusement' rather than 'Arcade' - it is actually more fitting these days, seeing that MAME not only emulates video arcade games, but redemption/ticket games, slot machines, pinball machines, non-video machines and even home systems (when they are used as a base for an arcade game, like the 3DO). If I could buy, dump and emulate one of the DPS Video Scales or old non-video fortune tellers at the local shopping mall I would.
