Wouldn't flashing the Ruu just overwrite the bootloader and replace it one that can load Windows phone?

Yes, seen from the way of flashing GPE over Sense (and vice-versa) it also overrides the HBoot

I am no expert but I would think with out a wp boot loader it would be impossible for the file to even be read. I am also not sure replacing android BL is the way we want to go if we ever want to go back to android(and we likely would) best shot is a modified boot loader possibly on the sd card as to not replace our current android bootloader
