Supposing I have a given operation/sequence of operations that can be either commited or rolled-back, can I say that each operation is "rollbackable"? What is a word for something that can be rolled back?

A fine word that exists is:
repeal (v.) late 14c., from Anglo-French repeler, Old French rapeler "call back, call in, call after, revoke" (Modern French rappeler), from re- "back" (see re-) + apeler "to call" (see appeal (v.)). Related: Repealed; repealing.
It's unambiguous and not used in Database circles; its only failing is that is refers to "calls" which have little to do with this particular problem domain.
How about a cross-lingual portmanteau: From the German word "rear",
rück combined with roll, I get:
You can add the Umlaut to make it look exotic. It has the dubious features of sounding like "rock and roll" and "Rick-rolling". Or Scooby-Doo.
