How Many VMS Licenses Do You Need For a Panoramic Camera?

I'd like have have an option of recording any of the views that I need. Does any of the VMS vendors make it mandatory to buy a certain minimum of licenses? When I added Axis M3007 to Milestone Professional it added 8 different views and consumed 8 licenses. Is this normal? Can I disable some of the live/recording to retain licenses?
