Yeah. This is going to be a tricky point, but it is a restriction on
distribution.

You might be able to clarify the situation by contacting the upstream
copyright holder (sinclair? amstrad?) and getting them to provide (in
digital writing) permission to freely distribute the ROMS without any
restriction.

Even getting them just to say "We permit our ROMS to be freely
distributed without restriction" will meet the FE guidelines.
