SQL Server Standard cannot be used with cluster of more than 2 nodes

I was asked to help to count the licences for Microsoft based server environment.
So the customer had a four-node SQL Server Enterprise failover cluster and wanted to upgrade. At first I thought that they should definitely use SQL Server Standard as it is much cheaper, but then I found out that SQL Server Standard can only be used in a two-node failover cluster, so they had to use SQL Server Enterprise as four node cluster  was necessary.
