I was comparing MAME with FBA in order to check what's missing (aside from the obvious 3D systems) and I stumbled upon Pocket Gal (not the Deluxe version).

This ROM is parent, from 1987 and logically, should have been included in FBN/FBA, as everything else by Data East seems to be, including its aforementioned sequel.

More info here: http://adb.arcadeitalia.net/dettaglio_mame.php?game_name=pcktgal

Therefore my question is, are there any other missing parent ROMs from otherwise fully supported arcade systems?

Not sure what you mean, we don't support that "pocket gal" arcade system at all.
There are lots of companies we are missing support for a few arcade systems, if that's your question.

I see... I expected Data East to have some sort of a unified board system (like Capcom did with the CPS), that's why I assumed all Data East games could be already supported.

Capcom didn't have a single board system either, CPS (there are 3 of them, they use different hardware and require different code to be emulated) are just some of the arcade systems Capcom used. AFAIK the same applies for any well-known manufacturer.
