Advanced Server - How many clients?

Please, does anyone know what the 5 license maxumum, referred to in the web client help for advanced server refers to? Does it mean that the server will deal with up to 5 queries 'simultaneously'? I ask because I was shocked when I stumbled accross the limitation. Had it meant that only 5 users could login at once, it would have rendered the entire, external user thing a waste of time. Experimentation showed, however, that many more than 5 people could login; I couldn't reach the limit.

What still worries me is that, whatever this limitation is, it seems largely un-documented. Could this apparent, limitless login, suddenly dissappear in the next Service Pack?

Finally, please could you tell me how many external users do you have (if more than 5) - do they ever get blocked out?

PS - Sorry, by external users, I simply mean web client users (be they internal or external).
