And this script has no way of putting them back,

As it says in the docs for scte65scan you could restore from your backup DB
that you created before importing to the vct.sql

No, mythifilldatabase will do this assuming your lineup is setup correctly.
Note that many people have been tricked into thinking that it didn't add the
XMLIDs because the default mythfilldatabase will only make the changes to
tomorrow's listings IIRC.  Patience and/or the right mythfilldatabase
command will sort this out.
