Except the two dears forget that article 50 will not be interpreted under UK common law.... so if it does not specifically state that it can be revoked it will not be so. Furthermore it can easily be argued that since the article specifically states who a exiting member can rejoin, it was never the intention of the drafters nor the parties to the treaty that it should be possible that the article be revoked.
Depends on how you decide the meaning of this sentence "If a State which has withdrawn from the Union asks to rejoin"

Does "has withdrawn" mean in the period after having invoked Art. 50 or does it mean after "...the date of entry into force of the withdrawal agreement or, failing that, two years after..."

Plus we have "Article 50 author Lord Kerr says Brexit could be stopped after Article 50 has been triggered."
