You can cap the cost by limiting how much data you store right? You can 
use RequesterPayBuckets 
to move the cost onto the users who want the data. Per user, it would 
still be fairly cheap. You get the added bonus of other S3 services, 
like being able to send a device back and forth to import/export on 
site. You would just pay for storage and transferring the data in - both 
cap-able by limiting the amount of data you put in it.

Not a recommendation or anything (its more convenient to not charge the 
downloaders), but I think you could technically cap the costs associated 
with putting it on S3.
