I don't think so, but "they" can. If you were lucky and roaming in a country where you could actually access data bypassing the Amazon proxy, "they" would see the discrepancy between GSM bandwidth and proxy bandwidth and generate an alert.

Perhaps you over-estimate the kindle-browser : ) but I would tend to assume it's "effectively" unlimited . With no flash, limited javascript, and the slow screen, I think you'd be hard-pressed to reach any kind of hard cap. I think it would be a challenge for even a hard-core un-hacked kindle user to top 100mb, so that would seem like a reasonable alarm threshold. Roaming usage could be more closely monitored as it is likely more expensive.

As long as "they" continue to receive the normal Kindle system logs which substantiate the device's usage (URLs, page navigation), I don't see how they could legally cut you off. Of course if you lied and used a US billing address (with no US access to show for it), well... better keep quiet and stay under the radar : )
