I asked our Oracle reseller this very same question, and this was her answer
on 8/25/2005:

"Per Oracles latest price list dated 8/19/05 it states:
That for the Database (10G) this use is allowed...

"Restricted Use: Oracle Internet Directory for the purposes of storing
Oracle Database Service information."

So I guess that as long as you don't use any of the AS stuff (which you have
to install to get OID), you don't need a license.  Seems like a waste of
disk space to me.
