No, I don't think that anyone gets your point. If we make up whatever fantasy world appeals to us, then we can just as easily ask what the MAME team's reaction would be if someone figured out that unicorns were able to play all games full-speed and can project a perfect CRT-quality image from their anuses onto the nearest wall. If we're just making up shit to try to prove a point, then I'm pretty sure anyone you're arguing against can come up with just as far-fetched a situation.
