I don't think there has been any confirmation one way or the other yet, although I'd be willing to bet that it is Region Locked... Nintendo has always been quite restrictive in that regard, they've never made a region free console in the past, why would they start now?

The DS was region free.

It's the only one I think.

Not as far I know, I tried an US copy of Mario Bros in my XL a while back and I don't think it worked, don't have a DSi or a XL now tho to try it now.

Yes and no. The only games that are even region locked on the DSI or the DSIXL are dsi enhanced games. Examples of some are like pokemon black and white. Games that are dsi enhanced will still play on any ds or dslight but they can only play on the same region of dsi, dsixl, 3ds, or 3dsxl. All of the downloads are also region locked. Any non DSI Enhanced game is even region free on a 3ds.

Apparently TWL coded games (some Japanese game I think) are region coded aswell.
