    No, you can't. This is one way ticket.

      I suppose you could do an authoritative restore to a time before the switch was made, but this would lose all information added to AD since then. Basically the mode switching (forest and domain) is an upward path only. You are warned on making the switch that this is the case

        Well... He will need to restore ALL the DCs in the forest... Some features can not be reverted by auth restore...
