Which application types can use SQL Server Web Edition on RDS?


When choosing to use SQL Server Web Edition on RDS what are the licencing considerations? Having tried to decipher both Microsoft's and AWS Licence information it's still not clear.

We're looking to transition our self hosted SQL Server instance to RDS, the Database Server is used for a multi-tenanted SaaS offering.
