The basic guidelines for emulators are covered in the Packaging
Guidelines.  See http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/PackagingGuidelines and
look for the section about emulators.

Looking at the information surrounding this particular emulator, it
seems to be questionable.  Although there are binary images freely
available, it sounds like the primary use for this software lies with
images that are not licensed freely.  This would generally disqualify it
from inclusion in Extras.  I would strongly encourage that the issue see
further review before this package is permitted into Extras.  The
decision made with regard to this package would be setting the example
for programs such as ZSNES.  Although I am not one to make the call, I
would expect that these sorts of packages would be avoided with Extras. 
Livna would probably be more accepting of these sorts of programs.
