yes, you can host the 2003 TSCAL's and 2008 RDS-CALS at the Win2008R2 Server with TS-Licensing-server-role installed.

Server-manager -> add role RemoteDesktopservices but select the Role-Feature "Remotedesktoplicensing" only

Start remotedesktop licensing from  "adminitstration/remoteDesktopServices" Folder.
Activate the Server online and add licenses.
Point your RDS Servers to this License-Server.

Thats all i think.
