Sometimes it is nessasary if the child is hurting someones feelings.  Sometimes you just need to talk to the parents.  We have a child in our neighborhood who is a bully and had NO manners and I have had to speak up a couple times.

I would rather people not attempt to discipline my child in any way... I want them to come to me about it.

Yes, I do but I think it should be done in a proper way. I wouldn't be yelling at or be condescending to someone else's kid, it would have to be done in a respectful way. I would also hope that someone would properly correct my DD if she needed it and I wasn't there.

It depends on the circumstances, and you have to be very polite about it. It is rarely wrong to point out another person's bad behavior to them.

 What if you aren't there? He's verbally abusing another kid. Your kid is getting corrected.

If their parents aren't around...or if the kid is a royal brat and mom and/or dad are completely ignoring horrible behavior.......then - yes.
