I'm pretty sure it still applies. Regardless if you use the connection server or not you need to license based on the concurrent usage model. I'd recommend asking a local var or vmware rep directly though, as I don't work for vmware, and getting it directly from them and not through a forum like this is probably best. A vmware employee did reply in that attached link, but who you would by the licenses from directly to confirm.
I had read that topic before I decided to create my own. The information that can be found there is not sufficient (or I'm not seeing it) to provide a straightforward and clear answer to my original question.
I'd appreciate if there is someone willing to share thoughts about optimal purchase scenario to meet my requirements.
You really should contact VMware directly, or a local var for licensing questioning like this, forums aren't legally binding so you need to get that information from a verifable source. That said, why wouldn't it be concurrent users, any remote connection licenses are generally named or concurrent, and since they wouldn't be able to track named usuage with the direct connect agent, it would have to be concurrent.
