I've seen a few reboot when I've been to arcades, they've been phoenix sets. They penetrated the market something special. I suspect the places that rent out the machines or whatever installed the phoenix kits first chance they got to reduce their maintenance costs.

A judgement call will be made on a case-by-case basis.

There are other things in MAME that were probably never operated outside of one arcade back in the day, things that were sold as conversion kits that ultimately nobody wanted so got tossed in the garbage instead, but 30 years later one that survived ends up being sold. You wouldn't argue those don't belong in MAME, typically they end up selling for quite a lot of money now too. I wouldn't say it was double standards, it's just trying to make a sensible call in each case.
