According to this and this, Wordpress.com blogs can be mapped to a custom domain (e.g.: example.com). However, I don't see anything that says it can be mapped to a subdomain (e.g.: blog.example.com) or a path within a domain (e.g.: example.com/blog).

Does anyone have any experience with this to definitively say whether this is possible?

Definitely possible, I think you just missed this link that shows how:

Thanks for the link! To clarify for anyone else who has the same question, that link explains that it can be done with subdomains, but cannot be done with subdirectories. – Matt Huggins Apr 30 '10 at 20:07

Yes, it's possible. I've actually did this unintetionally earlier, I unzipped the wordpress .zip to my folder and uploaded it, which gave me example.com/wordpress. You could easily rename the folder to blog or similar and this would provide the desired effect.
