I've been debating doing this for several years. I have no intention on returning to the US but still have family there and might end up there for a career opportunity. I also worry about the possibility of US nationals who renounce being placed on a "banned for life" list which would prevent me from ever moving back there (imagine Trump making a talking point about those people who "abandoned" their country not being worthy of coming back, regardless of their current citizenship). I've also heard there are some additional tax issues if a US citizen bequeaths assets to a non citizen.
Banned for life, unlikely to happen unless the US learns to write it's laws better.

Since you don't have to give a reason for renouncing it's rather difficult to enforce.

For the tax side, best to start researching here

The Isaac Brock Society website also has a lot of info and you're welcome to ask questions if you don't find an answer
