Thanks, that info helps me out a little. At least I now know that I will be able to install all the apps through configurator, with the VPP.
I guess the answer isnt out there regarding "how many devices per ID" question. Obviously if there was no limit I could purchase an app on one of them and then download that app on all of the iPads with the same ID.

Another great source of helpful information is the iOS in Education deployment guide. As I recall it discusses licensing issues such as you have.

There is no technical limit (just a legal and ethical one) to the number of iPads you can install paid apps on when you sync them with iTunes. Configurator, however, will require a license for each iPad when it comes to paid apps.

The Apple Configurator tool robbed my school of @ 60×4 apps.
Here's my mistake. I bought all the apps needed for the whole school in one lump sum. i.e. 350 copies of Pages. Then happily went to Configurator and loaded the spreadsheet. Installed on all the student iPads. Then need the remaining licenses to gift to the teachers and @ 30 for the cart. NOPE! Once they are loaded in to Configurator you can never get them back. Apple said, “sorry”.
I did this for the iWorks suite, iPhoto, & neu.Annotate before I realized what was happening.
This is what to do, in short. From the VPP account, buy the number needed for exactly what you need, just make sure, it's over 20, even if you only need 11, 20 copies is cheaper than 11 because they are half off at 20 or more. Get the spreadsheet generated by the VPP site for the 20 then buy for the next cart or site, it will generate a new spreadsheet of 20 you can give to the computer and its copy of Configurator.

Robin Hood to the rescue....
The codes are still usable for your other purpose(s).
If you import 100 codes into a version of AC and then only use 10 of them (redeem 10) the remaining 90 are still available. You just can't get them out of AC. So just extract from the original spreadsheet (or delete the first 10 rows) and import the spreadsheet into a second AC. Or gift the remaining 90 codes etc.
If you ever go back to trying to use the 90 codes in the first AC, you will get an error that the codes have been redeemed (if you already used them elsewhere).
Put another way, if you imported the 100 codes into 3 copies of AC, you would not have 300 licenses. Each AC would only redeem a code if it has not already been redeemed by the other 2. Each code redemption is checked to see if it has already been used up at time of redemption.
