I have successfully downloaded some HiRes files from HDtracks, it does seem to depend on the artist/label as to whether non US customers can download, only tried with PayPal. I understood that availability "out of region" has more to do with the record companies restricting distributors to their own regions and not take business from distributors in other regions, much as is done with films.

Regarding licence fees for listening to radio or recorded music and road fund license, doesn't matter what it's called or the premise for the charge; it's just another form of tax!
I note from the PPL website:
"The organisation is committed to delivering a first-class service to all its customers. PPL does not retain a profit for itself - after running costs, all revenue is distributed to its record company and performer members."
I wonder what percentage actually gets to the artists?

I'm a bit late to the game here, but 2l's test bench: http://www.2l.no/hires/index.html have quite a few free 24/192kHz FLAC files.

And for those reluctant to click the link, yes they have a few original DXD files as well, clocking in at 1GB for about 9 and a half minutes of sound.

I was reading through some older threads to see if there was something interesting I had missed, and found this debate about high res files. Interesting to read since I understand the argument about high res files now points into very different conclusions.
