Problem is that the doc explicitly says
"A separate Oracle Database can be installed and used as an Oracle Enterprise Manager Grid Control (OEM Grid Control) repository without additional license requirements, provided that all the targets (databases, applications, and so forth) managed in this repository are correctly licensed. "
and a lawyer might have a difficulty equating "a separate database" to "a primary and a standby instance and completely duplicated files" ...
On the RAC part - I have verified in writing with Oracle that any options (such as RAC, OneNode, Spatial, Partitioning, etc.) to the EE database used as OMR are not included in the above statement.
