Is the mount considered an acceptable way to pin someone in Judo, or are you expected to transfer to a side or north/south pin before the ref starts counting? What about knee on the belly?

To answer your question yes it is acceptable to pin from the BJJ mount position. In judo it is called tate shiho gatame. From the Osaekomi rules, knee on belly ( old form of kesa gatame) is not a legitimate pin. You need to be in a body on body position ( like chest on chest) or kesa (side body pressure) postion to be a pin in general. An excellent book on judo pins is Osaekomi by Kashiwazaki- Masterclass series. One pin tecknique that has changed in the book is ura gatame. You can't pin with your back to the opponent. turn your body inward so now you are in a reverse kesa type hold postition, grab the farthest gi pant at the knee. .
