In Windows Server 2008 you do not have to tell it about your standard user/device CALs. For legal reasons, you must correctly purchase and keep the CAL certificate - as proof you own the CAL - but you do NOT need to enter any information into the server. Windows Server 2008 Standard Edition is designed for small to very large organizations - so Microsoft simplify the procedure by not requiring CAL numbers to be entered all the time.

The only exception is, as you have mentioned Terminal Services.
