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?

    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.
