Um, Korn and Vo seem to imply it *is* invertible:
"Data differencing is the process of computing a compact and invertible
    encoding of a "target file" given a "source file"."

Then they go on to describe vdelta/vcdiff as doing data differencing.

As for xdelta, it's all in the xdelta cvs repo on sourceforge. His vcdiff
work so far is there too.
As is inversion of delta chains.

Look at the xdfs/xdfs.cc and xdfs/xdfs_comp.h.
