Hands-On Details about the iPad 2 and iOS 4.3 by Jeff Carlson

Jeff Carlson on Tibits indicates I may have been wrong in my assumptions of how home sharing on iOS works in his Hands-On Details about the iPad 2 and iOS 4.3.

A part of the iOS 4.3 update, iTunes Home Sharing lets you stream media from a copy of iTunes on your network to your iPad, rather than having to first transfer it during a sync operation. In addition, Home Sharing helps keep your library up to date. When you purchase a song on an iOS device and then connect to your iTunes library wirelessly, the song is automatically transferred to your library. It’s like turning your iOS device into an Apple TV.
