RE: Step down - EE to SE

No, using the underlying management pack packages without a license is not okay:

http://download.oracle.com/docs/cd/B19306_01/license.102/b14199/options.htm#CIHIGHAH

"The Tuning Pack functionality can be accessed by the Enterprise Manager links 
as well as through the database server command-line APIs. The use of either 
interface requires licensing of the Tuning Pack.

. . .

Tuning Pack features can also be accessed by way of database server APIs. Use 
of the following PL/SQL packages requires a license for the Oracle Tuning Pack:

*         DBMS_SQLTUNE

*         DBMS_ADVISOR, when the value of the advisor_name parameter is either 
SQL Tuning Advisor or SQL Access Advisor.

*         The following report found in the /rdbms/admin/ directory of the 
Oracle home directory is part of this pack: sqltrpt.sql."

Packages used by these and the EE Tuning Pack (dbms_sqltune) are installed 
under my SE instances as well as EE.  So using the underlying packages is OK??
