Oracle Options licensed 1:1 with Oracle Ent. Edition 11gR2 or by Instance?

Are Oracle Options licensed 1:1 with Oracle Ent. Edition 11gR2 (e.g. by CPU core multiplier) or by number of database instances on a host? In other words, if I need to purchase two Oracle Enterprise Edition licenses for a single host, do I need to purchase the same number of Oracle Option licenses (again, based on a CPU core multiplier). Or by the number of Oracle database instances installed on that host?

Anyone have a link to an official Oracle options licensing document that spells this out? Found one for 11g but it didn't get down into the weeds, saying if there was any difference between # of licenses required for an Option vs. a license for Oracle Enterprise Edition itself.
