Are there any demo sites ?
Yes, MemberPress is the most popular integration with this plugin. My customers use it to add and remove premium usergroups when a product is purchased, or its membership expires. It is also possible to make the integration do anything by syncing custom user fields across purchases, and you can even send personalized conversations and alerts after a user takes a buying action on your WP site.1) Do you know if other folk are using XFtoWP successfully in this way with MemberPress?
That's correct.2) Will XftoWP create new XF users with the same user name and password as WP?
If you mean by the Account upgrade system in XenForo, then no, but it does create its own ways of upgrading and downgrading users through different plugin actions.3) Does XftoWP communicate user upgrades / downgrades to XF?
Needed to know e.g. if a subscription is not renewed, will MemberPress successfully downgrade the user’s XF primary usergroup through XftoWP?If you mean by the Account upgrade system in XenForo, then no, but it does create its own ways of upgrading and downgrading users through different plugin actions.
Yes, that is setup with a simple action in the XFtoWP settings. To make an important distinction, the users secondary usergroups will be added or removed. The plugin was built to follow XenForo's usergroup promotion recommendations and doesn't change the Primary usergroup for that reason.

From your question others' feedback I see a way to tweak the plugin's user sync process so it can better detect when XF usergroups change and sync them over to the WP side. That way, the subscriptions system you use won't matter and XFtoWP will simply just keep a closer check on usergroup changes from the XF user. I will look at this for inclusion in XFtoWP 1.5.4 which is a minor update that has been in the works.Final question (thank you!)
Is there a user guide - or something similar – that covers the key points of moving subscription processing from XF to WP?
I realize this is as much of a MemberPress question as it is for you. However, a lot of folk do use XftoWP for this integration, so it’s possible someone may have already covered this stuff.
I’m very keen to see how we might preserve ongoing subs and their renewals, rather than forcing members to re-subscribe on the new system.
I have not yet tested the plugin on Multisite so I can't say with certainty.Is this add-on compatible with WordPress Multisite?
Yes, you can enable the Author role in WP admin > XFtoWP > Thread connect
