Although it can be fiddly to access, the data is not lost.  All you need 
is the changeset number of the deletion to be able to access the deleted 
data and its complete revision history.

A revertion is not a special operation in the database, so would just be 
recorded as a changeset deleting the objects reflecting the historic 
boundary.
