If it's anything like the G1, it'll eventually fade then peel off completely leaving an impossible-to-remove residue. I vaguely remember peeling that sticker off in one of my three G1. It seems like it didn't leave any residue when I removed it while it was still new. I'm leaving the one on my G2 in place. If/when it fades or comes off, I'll replace it - they're only a few dollars or less. Some manufacturers will send replacement safety labels at no charge (lawn mowers come to mind).
