Summary 06143: They are "Master Sets", NOT "Originals"
Description Currently in the new MAME UI, the master sets are labelled as "Originals", they are NOT originals of the respective title or machine in MAME by any means.

Current classification method for Master/Clone is expedient for the sake of some people, which put high priority on European set as a master rom set (Euro -> US -> English ->->-> Japan), this doesn't mean it is an "original" set of the game.

IMHO, the 'parent' set should be referred to as the 'default' set since it is chosen based on a set of arbitrary rules.
