AIUI: Only ish, in that the governments you said you renounced something to treat it as renounced. So if you ever wave your passport at them, they'll not take kindly to it and won't recognize it as valid. And AFAICT it's only a minority of governments that have this 'we don't recognize renunciations done to others' attitude. Most seem to be of the "well if you don't want us any more, be that way, traitor" persuasion. - Sai
