Yes, I think it's more logical. Historicaly, when an original game is released, It's the parent. All the following licensed, exported and updated versions are clones of the original. I never understood why MAME reverses this logic.

Anyway, there is no incidence for the final (history.dat) user. When a game have an original Japanese version. An explanation on the description section, links to the original entry/ROM. (I.E: "North American version, for more information about the game itself, please see the original Japanese version; [exact name & link]")

Note: In some case, the original version can be the American one (games developed in USA), and the Japanese is the exported version. In this case, the original is the one that contains the original information.

Not all entries are converted for now, but in an accurate historic logic, everything should be converted to this rule, when found.
