I'm watching this topic with interest after a recent power outage in SoCal.

Is there a clear upper limit to how much power the battery can provide? I've seen a few comments about 1000 - 1500W inverters... is 2kW a possibility? I have a heat pump (ductless mini-split) system for my house and would love to be able to heat my house during the next power outage.

That much power might work, but it's not advisable and the running time would be relatively short from the e-Golf's relatively small traction battery. It's much more reasonable to keep a natural gas forced air furnace, refrigerator, etc. running than a mini-split in heating mode.

The limit is the 12V regulator the eGolf has in place of an alternator. I never found specs for it, and the limits I have tested are in this thread.
