Thanks taming and Sameer. I hope the answer to taming's question is yes..."yours forever" should mean that I'd never lose access to a book I've bought, no matter what region it's restricted to or what region I am currently in.

I'll probably try to keep drm-free backups of everything I buy in any case, but one case where I might "need" to strip drm is if a book's only available for Kindle, then I believe I'd have to de-drm and convert to epub.
