The short answer is this is doable. The resolution and zooming is the issue in the long term I guess
Yeah, displaying a 12-bit grayscale image on a 4-bit grayscale display will be a bit tricky.
Certainly will never get FDA approval for the Kindle as a medical display device.

But doing something like a sliding 4-bit window over the 12-bit resolution, along with a "resolution zoom" might make it a useful viewer anyway (I.E: say a sliding 8-bit window that does an 8-to-4 bit dither, or 12-to-4 or ... -- sorry, I had to use that word: dither).
