Ansys structural and fluent for FSI

I saw in the ANSYS 15 capabilities chart that "ANSYS structural" doesnt support coupled physics, but Fluent does.

My question is - if I am about to get "ANSYS structural" and ANSYS Fluent - will I be able to do 2 way FSI simulations and 6 DOF simulations? Or do I have to have FLUENT coupled with "ANSYS Mechanical" to be able to do this?

"ANSYS Structural" can do 2-way FSI with Fluent. I think "coupled physics" must be referring to the coupled field elements in MAPDL (SOLID226, SOLID227).
