Does it? As far as I was aware the 360 only allowed limited amounts of downloads on other consoles and complete transferrals of licenses via a transfer cable and the One was to do the same?
The 360 allows unlimited downloads to other consoles; the only restriction is that you have to be signed into to play on any machine but the licensed one*, while that first machine will let anybody play. (I don't know if you have to be connected to Live on those other machines, or if the owner can play offline.)

The Sony system as described in that article sounds to me like it's structured the same way - the owner can download to any machine, but they have to be signed in to play.

* Defaults to where it's first downloaded. You can do a "license transfer" annually to move your licenses to another box.
