Check out the license when you download. Strictly development, generally no license needed. There's a bit of misinformation floating around about this, but think of this: they want to sell licenses, and one way to reel companies in is a liberal tasting policy. From a DBA viewpoint, you want to treat your development databases as production (that is, an explicity backup/restore policy), but for licensing, no problem. Optional things like AWR? I dunno. I'd say, don't ask, don't tell, say oops if you're caught. That's just my personal opinion.
As to what you can bring up in budget meetings, see dilbert.com.
