    Does anybody know whether client Macs running Mountain Lion are able to interact with, and be managed by, a server running Snow Leopard server?

    somewhere outside your window...
    It depends on what you mean by "interact with"...DNS, DHCP etc will work.

    But managed? No, I don't think so since the MCX/package changed.

    MLS now supports DHCP again (as of 10.8.2)

    10.6 server with 10.8 clients works

    Yes, I can assure you it works I have done this at the school I work at. MCX works, I have run into no problems with compatibility at all.

    I have a Mountain Lion client (upgraded from Lion) which is bound to a Snow Leopard Server machine for its Mobile Home Folder. It works as well as it ever did. :)
