Reading through the github page, it looks as though we might be able to supply
our own installers (EE for example) and utilize the images on fully licensed
hosts. If that holds true I can see this holding a big benefit.

The database image (and I imagine the other technologies as well) link
through to the OTN developer license
IANAL but I would suggest that means that your developers can only use that
in the same way as they would a download from OTN, which is to say for most
internal uses not at all. See also the wording on Oracle's github page

Anyone have any further details about Oracle's announcement about the
availability of docker images for the rdbms as well as multiple other tools?
In particular I have questions around licensing. They're touting that this
is great for developers to build quickly on their workstation, but if things
are still licensed per core, licensing all cores it will possibly run on,
it's of much less utility.
I do think it's fantastic that Oracle is trying to get up to date with modern
deployment practices, getting us freed from the archaic install process. Any
progress is great in my eyes. I'm just looking at it very skeptically before
I start talking about it more with our devs. Is this just a PR spin, trying
to get everyone excited about Oracle cloud?
In case you hadn't seen the announcement:
