Unsure.   Registration is a user interface concept.   sugar-control- 
works behind that in ways that are unclear to me.   I think the  
answer is
yes as long as UI registration (a one-way process) has not occurred.

Deleting it will cause the user to be prompted for nickname and color
again, and will allow re-registration with another server.

A caveat here:  Unless the machine is reflashed, the basic ID in jabber
will remain the same (the laptop keys are the same.)
