I'm not sure what discussion you're hoping to have: MAME now has a real, legal license that's been successfully defended in courts on multiple continents, and as a result things linking directly against it have new responsibilities too. Several devs, myself included, have told Robbert (and whoever maintained it before him) on multiple occasions over the last decade+ that he should make *UI a conventional external FE for this and other reasons, but he chose not to listen. And now all that needs to happen to make *UI go on is to do the same work we did for MAME/MESS, but on a much, much smaller scale.
