I've been poking around the code to see if it would convert
it back to a ROOT account but I get lost once it starts dealing with
the QOF code.  I did notice what seems to be a bit of redundant code:

Around line 450 in gnc-account-xml-v2.c it calls
and if it returns NULL then gnc_account_create_root() is called.  But,
gnc_book_get_root_account() finds no root account then it creates one
returns it.
