I think there's a fairly significant difference between an emulator

The first is analogous to requiring media; you see what the console
displays if a cartridge isn't inserted.  The second is the same as
requiring a non-free library for which there is no free replacement. (I'm not aware of any free replacement PSX BIOSes.)

Agreed, fully.

I'd agree with that, too. Very succintly put.
