No.

Yes, that's the expected use.

My opinion is that this should be identical to what's defined in
http://www.w3.org/TR/css-style-attr [css-style-attr] (particularly,
read the last paragraph of
http://www.w3.org/TR/css-style-attr#examples)

I like this [css-style-attr] draft and if the WG prefers the <style
scoped> syntax I think the rules shouldn't be different.

Yes

As I understand [css-style-attr], no, because article would the root
of the "subdocument", i.e. it wouldn't be the child of any other
element (in the context of the scoped stylesheet).

No (see above)

No, it would match the article element (see above)
