Windows Server 2012 Licensing

Greetings. I know that 2012 "Standard" allows for 2 VM guests on one physical machine.  And I know that 2012 "Datacenter" allows for unlimited VM guests on one physical machine. Both up to two physical processors.

Questions:
1. Those VMs refer to guest 2012 VMs, correct ?  With Standard, I can technically have as many guest 2008 VMs as I want, right ?
2. I've read that each additional license of Standard 2012 allows for two additional VMs. I assume that if I have additional Standard 2012 licenses, I can install additional 2012 VM guests on the same host, right ?  This is just a legal licensing thing, right ?  I don't need to enter any additional licensing information or configure anything special - just install the additional VM guests if I'm licensed for them, yes ?

Thanks.
-Stephen

Hmmm, you're an "expert" who's been here for 2 days and sends me a link to a local file.  Dubious, my friend.
