Because the world didn't catch fire with the news, Microsoft has taken to their blogging network to announce a licensing change to Remote Desktop Services (RDS), allowing service providers (partners) to use RDS to offer remote connections to applications and shared desktops that are being hosted in a VM on Windows Azure.
The licensing has been updated in the Windows Azure Licensing FAQ here: Remote Desktop Services on Windows Azure
