You can not have more than 2 nodes in CCR.

You can think of SCR to replicate data to standalone server but it requires manual failover if both nodes in CCR go down.

If you are using CCR - Exchange 2007 then you can have maximum 2 nodes in cluster since it is active-passive file share quorum witnes model.

"Exchange 2007 RTM and Exchange 2007 SP1 support a maximum of two nodes that have the Mailbox server role installed (one active and one passive) in a CCR environment." - http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb124721.aspx

If you are using SCC - Exchange 2007 then you can have more than 2 nodes.
