And which of those apply to this situation?
None.

Of course he can use it to feed a subpanel. What he *can't* do is use it to feed a subpanel that supplies both 120V and 240V loads.
Consider: if the subpanel supplies only 240V loads, there's no need for a neutral, and 10/2 WG is fine. Also, if the subpanel supplies only 120V loads, there's no need for two hots, but of course only every other breaker stab in the panel will have power.
