Well, in my opinion these files have to be preserved, but if you have to modify these in any way to make em run fine on a real SNES, then these are no files to be added to that database. In that case you have to keep the unmodified files in another database. Thats my opinion at least.

EDIT: Btw, I extracted all for me reachable SNES; NES and GBA titles from European WiiU Store and the only known SNES rom right now is a valid Earthbound (USA), rest (22 other games) is completely different as it seems.

I used the well known vc extractor and WiiU USB Helper for Download.

So, these SNES VC ROMs are not actually good.

Legend of Zelda, The - A Link to the Past (USA) (Wii U Virtual Console)
Mario no Super Picross (Japan) (Wii U Virtual Console)
Super Mario RPG - Legend of the Seven Stars (USA) (Wii U Virtual Console)

So, my question is this. What can make them good?

The "good" roms are already in the set. Patched roms with the same internal checksum as the original version belong in a side project imo, as they aren't pure. No official decision has been made still (guess the staff doesn't care to respond).

I too would say separate since they are still "official", just not for the original console they were developed on.
