That's an excellent point, but one that is also valid for every single extension out there.
Depends on what it does, if it's just added feature typically no big deal. You just disable it and lose the feature. Some could be more difficult than others, an SEO extension for example that is rewriting URL's. Not impossible to go back but largely a PITA if you want to do it right. You need to reveres the .htaccess rewrites and write script to handle reverting posted URL's.
Granted this one has the potential to be particularly problematic in that sense.
This is altering the way data is stored and would require a substantial amount of work to revert if it's possible at all.
I do think it's also a matter of responsibility on whoever runs the forum. You wish to offer certain functionality, you make sure it works and gets support. Even if at a point this requires hiring an external developer, just to state an example...
Keep in mind if there is no support for it here you need to support it yourself forever.
