I'd like it OUT.
The whole point of removing it is, that it gets turned on by accident all the time. I don't even know how, I just know that it means that you effectively cannot permanently disable it that way. It is extremely annoying, you rely on your phone to work and this stuff opens and interferes at random. Also I almost messaged my boss "What the f***, you piece of s***!" by accident. This must never happen, hence the complete removal is very important.

Solution Android 4.1:
Remove Velvet.apk (System App google search services or something) with rootappdelete. The "google voice typing" will disappear from the input methods. So far I observed no ill effects.
