AFAIK, there isn't a way to go back (that easily). I don't know of any
reasons why you would have a problem with 7.0, that you wouldn't have
with 6.5. In reality, 7.0 has proven to be less problematic that 6.5

If you have a backup of your 7.0 database, the worse I can think of
is that you would have to reinstall 7.0 and restore it. Not much
different than the worse 6.5 scenario. :)

My two field updates from 6.5 to 7.0 have had similiar results to
Not one problem on the update, and they were for very large
where 6.5 just wasn't performing anymore.
