CAL Licensing and user limitations?

Hi to everyone, probably it's a faq but I did not find a sure answer.

A customer has a Sql Server 2000 standard installed in 1server/5CAL
licensing mode, in a windows 2000 server.
Does this type of installation limit the further connections (occourred in
same or distinct sql accounts) that exceed the 5 client/user?
And if this connections aren't limited, are these further connections
penalized by the query governor like MSDE does?

In short, is the CAL licensing mode only a legal issue without affecting or
limiting the performance of the exceeding connections?

Thanks in advance,
Pas!

It's only a legal issue.
