I remain hopeful that I will be able to download books eventually from other Amazon sites - mainly, as I am from England but living in the US. Any idea when that might be?

None. You can't be registered to more than one Amazon country store at the same time anyway, and you need to live in the UK and have a UK credit card to buy digital content from anyway.

It seems strange that you can buy the physical book and ship it to the US from England - of course at huge expense - but can't do the same with Kindle e books. Oh well I probably won't be able to still read in 2046!!!

Physical items are based on the location of the seller while digital rights are based on the purchase location.
To purchase the ebook the publisher has to have publication rights in your country of residence and make it available to store you are registered to.
