As a matter of fact, my wife started using iTunes again now that I gave her the iPad. Songs that she bought years ago, when she was in college, just appear there. She thought those were gone because the old laptop she had died then. We were charged though an we are arguing that with Apple because technically she paid for that years ago.
You're correct. But this is a new feature, added after the Apple Developer's Conference keynote. It's really the beginning of the iCloud feature set.
You can now re-download Apps, Books, Music, etc. you've purchased before by clicking the "Purchased" button on the right side of the iTunes Store in iTunes.
