Should we give the options for the ancient races being possible PC character races?

It all depends on whether the race is written in a balanced manner.  If the race is written with obvious overpowering stats/abilities/or special considerations (whether technology, resources, or other campaign aspects), like Mechanons in the Zeb's book, then the race will obviously be off-limits in most Referee's campaigns.

If the race is produced in a balanced way, much like how I have tried to craft races that I have produced in the Star Frontiersman (including the Eorna which should appear in the SFMan #8), then I see no reason to exclude them.... especially when they fit so neatly into existing campaign cannon material.
