"Computers that run Windows NT Workstation 4.0, Windows 2000 Professional, and Windows XP Professional are licensed for a maximum of 10 concurrent client incoming sessions. Computers that run Windows XP Home Edition are licensed for a maximum of 5 concurrent client incoming sessions. All logical drive, logical printer, and transport level connections combined from a single computer are one session."

there doesn't appear to be a hard and fast rule as to the size of workgroups - the limitation is on how many connection each workstation can handle

You could have 200.  500.  10,000.  BUT, the maximum number of simultaneous connections to any one XP Pro system is 10.
