I see. That seems to mostly involve either hex editing or disassembling.
In any case, I haven't heard of ROMs with a free license.

Look into how Debian distributes games like "Flight of the Amazon Queen"
-- they're ScummVM games, being distributed under a free license I think
(I might be wrong) which are similar.

I think that would be the exception to the rule. So ScummVM can stay.

I think the whole emulation scene is at best, a non-commercial mess, and
very proprietary and dubious legality in many cases.

It looks that way. That's why I prefer to not give game emulators the benefit of the doubt and let the burden of proof to have them included in a free distro be with game players.
