VMWare ESXi 510 vSphere licensing

Do I understand correctly when they say that licensing now is done per CPU only in version 510 of VMWare ESXi? See page 3:
http://www.vmware.com/files/pdf/vsphere_pricing.pdf

The only restrictions I need to worry about are those on page 6?

in regards of cpu I seem to remember now you only pay a license for a cpu not a core
