It certainly is. Just as social class (in Bourdieuan terms) is important, or gender, to name only a few things, aka the holy trinity of identity studies (Karen Cerolo). I am just against privileging a certain type of an identity trait, that "space" that is the national country. I have nothing against attaching a small vita, but I, for one, would not like to be presented, as "Thomas Koenig (GR/DE/UK/I/US/SR)", it also would be pretty meaningless, keeping it that cryptic way.
