As far as I know, this mechanism doesn't prevent you from creating another root. (or just deleting the old one) Not to speak of that it isn't (again afaik) in use or even implemented yet - though I'm unsure about that last part (implementation), as I didn't look too deep into the mud created by those in the media industry that tried to coerce the TCG into implementing their wet dream of an ultimately locked down consumer world.
