Being honest, I never thought it made sense that the Federation would appoint him as Federation Ambassador to the Klingon Empire (and it wouldn't be a Starfleet matter, so Ross & Sisko wouldn't have the final say).
Worf probably is the best person suited to be the Federation ambassador to Qo'noS. He is a Klingon and also a Federation citizen as he was adopted by the Rozhenkos (he's probably listed as Worf Rozhenko in the adoption file, IMO). If there's anyone who understands the needs of both the Klingons and the Federation, it's Worf.
Yes, but he also put Martok on the throne, and couldn't even get married without the permission of Martok's wife. You can't see a great honking conflict of interest there?
Only if Worf was intending to serve on the Klingon High Council. Otherwise, as a Federation official, Worf's background would make him ideal as the person to maintain good relations & communications between the Empire and the Federation, which is likely all his job entailed.
At the very least he'd need to leave the House of Martok. And I doubt that would be enough for the Federation Council.
I don't think so at all. Worf's personal connection to Martok probably would be considered an asset to his position.
