please keep in mind, that the standby database will only use one
instance for recovery, so you can use the power of the RAC on standby
side after a switchover only. In usual cases this should not be a
problem, physical standby recovery is rather cheap.

You don't need to count instances the way you explained - a RAC recovery
works very good on a single-instance standby system as well. Given, it
has enough power, of course.

Since the physical standby database is only in MOUNT state, the undo
tablespace usage does not count.

I assumed physical standby database as desired by you, should you prefer
logical stb, things are changing greatly: But in this case, I won't use
more instances per node than the production has.
