Actually no the treaty isn't gone.

I did some checking the other night on dissolving treaties including treaties that no longer have a second party. All treaties have a method of dissolution. In the cases where the one of the previous parties no longer exists or no longer exists in the form that created the treaty the treaty is not automatically nulled. Since the Romulan government still exists and there has been no dissolution to the treaty then the treaty is in effect. There has been no formal declaration of war by the Romulans or by the Federation then the Federation is still bound by the Treaty of Algeron until such time as a formal declaration of war OR the Federation council votes to disolve the treaty.
