You can play songs from the cloud (iTunes Match) or you can download them to your phone and keep them locally.

People split hairs over the meaning of the word stream so I stayed away from that.

Yes it's only iOS 6 that will 'stream' iOS 5.x.x will start to play on commence of download. That song then lives on your phone and the cloud, although you can remove local stored songs from the phone from the device itself.

sweet, so its best not to let it discover all your songs @ once, i suppose its best to put them in 1 by 1 to keep everything as organized as possible.
