The argument breaks down somewhat for non-ROM -based games ("PC Games", as 
MythGame likes to call them.) I run frontends on Linux, FreeBSD, and Mac OS 
X. Not all of the games I have are available on all of those platforms. Nor 
do the pathnames necessarily agree. I could certainly set up shell scripts 
to hide the differences, but it would be a lot easier if I had host-specific 
game definitions.
