Well, yes.

But this doesn't quite solve the problem for the Kindle.  Kindle does reasonably well in landscape mode with many .pdf files, but even in that mode---as has been observed---some appear in such small typeface that they're very difficult to read.  The document you give below is readable, even in portrait mode.  But I still think the best solution would be a good .dvi to .mobi converter.
