Data Guard licensing

we have 9i ( Standard Edition and as the alert.log states [:o)] Oracle 
Data Guard is not available in this edition.
We plan to mount a second instance in standby and setup a custom procedure to 
apply the redo logs.
As we have to use the standby syntax "alter database create standby controlfile 
as ... " and "alter database mount standby database" to mount the secondary 
instance, I was wondering if this is correct regarding the Data Guard 
licensing? Is it "permitted/authorized to use a SE in this way?
