I understand this point of view too but here is a simple example of my historical logic:

When a game is released, it is released with all it's 1.0 ROMs.
When this game is updated for bugfixes, in most case, they update only SOME of the ROMs to 1.1 (the bugfixed ones).

As of today, in MAME, we have the 1.1 ROMs as parent and the 1.0 "rollback ROMs" as clone.
Logically and technically, we should have the 1.1 ROMs update as a clone (since it's only an Update) and the 1.0 as parent.

Having the reverse is not logical to me and "can be" not accurate in some cases (emulation and documentation).

----

Anyway, in the History.dat (and arcade-history): 1.0, 1.1, 1.2 (or set3, set2, set1) ROMS share all the same entry. We have different entries only for "Regions" when the title is different, not for different Sets under the same region
