I'm assuming that the form the notice is served is not prescribed, I wonder therefore that in the same way a company raises and ordering document to another company and the buying company adds its own terms, then some smart brexit lawyer could add its "terms" to allow revocation.

Otherwise I'm struggling to see why we would not leave much sooner than the 2 year deadline. It might save us a lot of money?

You are overthinking this.

The Article 50 notice will be given. That sentence ended with a full stop. A better analogy might be a tenant's notice to terminate a lease.

Then there is the joy of the negotiation of the terms of the exit, and hopefully of terms of the relationship moving forwards.
