"Rooting" is just gaining administrator login rights. On Linux based OSes, the username "root" = admin.

Root is gained by issueing the command "su" for superuser. The process of rooting is putting the su.apk file in the system directory.

Should be easy to undo.

Don't think it works that way. The su.apk is just an interface. Su is pushed into /system/xbin (which is not an apk file), not to mention busy box gets installed. I could be wrong and if so please tell me, however I think its more complicated than just deleting the apk file to unroot.
