Actually, I happened to think about it yesterday.

Of course the 'unshare' functionality this adds a bit more complexity to 
the issue, which I think is the main reason why it is not handled as of 
today. At the moment, what you do when you want to stop a shared session 
is that you close the activity.

So activities at the moment have to be aware of that fact and should be 
able to handle those cases cleanly (person who joined/the person who 
started the shared session are leaving). However, for 'unshare' you have 
to handle as well this case, the activity state change, in your activity 
and this might be a bit trickier, or at least adds more complex code.
