I do hope you are right though, but this sounds like a very aggressive move where the choices seem to be LGPL or BSD your code or get the f*ck out while we rewrite your code.
I can't see any reason for such a disruptive move for the possibility of having Mame in for-profit museums.
And as for code traversing between other emulators, that can be solved on a author to author basis where the code author can dual licence his/her code as per request (or chose not to if they don't want to), I just can't see this as the basis for re-licencing the entire project.
