I have, and I personally did not find it valuable. You can do much of the same with EA and it really depends what are you trying to achieve. I have introduced it to my team, all systems analysts and business analysts and they found it unintuitive.

Hmmm. I was afraid of that (the website isn't very informative or encouraging).

I would like to be able to 'execute' UML diagrams to help verify (i) the diagrams themselves and (ii) the design. I've got a couple of books on the subject, and have read numerous articles, and it seems doable.

If I understood you correctly you are looking to validate the design through some simulation or execution. The only product that i have been using for that specific purpose is from Telelogic and is called Tau.
I have used EA though for debugging and visualizing my code (http://www.sparxsystems.com/resources/demos/debuggingjava/DebuggingJ03.htm) which in some way validates my design but after the fact. I'm sure that's not what you're looking for.
