Please contact Microsoft regarding all licensing questions as there are so many uncertainties at this point on your list, e.g.,

  • you will definitely NOT need SQL Server Enterprise license on all servers
  • you might not even need SQL Ent, but might be fine with Std
  • you don't need both Std and Ent CAL for SharePoint
  • you don't need SP license on SQL Server, unless you use Reporting Services and install SP on SQL
  • you don't need SP license on Office Web Apps, but may need Office CALs if you want people to be able to modify Office docs using browser
  • you might not need SP license on Dev machine, if you have MSDN developer licenses
