We use the "named users" pricing scheme for non-production servers and the
"processor" pricing scheme for production servers.

Check ""; for information on how to calculate
the minimum number of "named users" for a server for each type of product.
They have a lot of this stuff spelled out, so people can actually buy
products online...

But of course, doesn't address your question
(licensing dev/test/etc), nor does it address the question of how to license
a standby for Data Guard, etc...
