Jein (sorry, had to use that German phrase) :)

That means: it depends.
Now that merge tracking is implemented in the nightly builds, even
operations that were previously completely local sometimes need now to
contact the server.

For renaming, that might go away until the final release. But for
example a 'revert' operation has to tell now the server that it also has
to revert the merge tracking info (e.g.: you do a reverse merge, but
then decide that it was a bad idea and revert the changes before you
commit - the server needs to know that the reverse merge was reverted).
