comment How would you call on-device unit tests ?
I wrote BIST years ago, and they are a totally different beast... As you said BIST is meant to give PASS/FAIL results for malfunctioning hardware

not diagnostics, those are real unit tests- API tests, boundary values etc.

comment When is it OK not to have dedicated testers/QA team?
There are two problems with that-the first is that most developers lack testing skills and know-how, the second is that real system tests usually requires infrastructure and someone working 100% to maintain it.

comment Should I use “the test fails if” instead of “the test succeeds if”?
Good point- it depends on the tester's state of mind. The main problem we saw with negative expected results is that there are endless possible failures, and writing only some of them can cause the tester to overlook others.

comment How do you adapt agile testing techniques to a regulated industry?
I'm not an expert but have some experience with regulations. some of them requires the presence of documents, and auditors verify the documents actually exists, but not the contents itself or the format (I'm not totally correct here- for example you can use a spreadsheet, test file or mind map but will usually have to add dates and changelogs to all). Even NASA uses iterative methods to some extent and keeps the same quality level.

comment reporting cumulative test results
You are not entirely correct, obviously we don't have clear knowledge of the total quality but bugs are caught and fixed and those intermediate builds are not a total waste of time. Another part of the justification is that SW is developed across the world, by many teams that not always communicate with each other and sometime at different points in time or on different platforms. Usually an intermediate build is aimed to test a single module, with hope that there is someone making sure a final systems tests is done.

Don't get me wrong, I know this is wrong and I avoid it when possible, and raise a red flag is reality (i.e. bugs) contradict it. But some of the tools (in-house test management tool) just works this way. I think that originally it was designed to allow failed runs until a test is stable, but not it is being abused most of the time.
