Mostly, but that's easy to arrange by running your "shrinking proxy"
on your home ADSL and saving bytes across your expensive UMTS or GPRS
mobile link.

Even without that, running proxies locally can still be useful. As you
mentioned, you can turn images and plugins off, but with these let you
make sure gzip compression is being asked for, block classes of images
or hosts, cache files more aggressively, etc.
