Life is full of "choices" you can opt for a 20 year old version of MAME warts and all or simply opt for the vastly superior latest version.
That decision at the end of the day is upto the "users" they'll make an informed choice around which builds they want to use on their own devices.
Oh and that core he's talking about isn't plain ole vanilla MAME72 similar to certain other ancient cores which do the rounds there have been many code changes backported from later MAME builds.
