Exchange 2007 database size limitation in a cluster

When using a cluster with Exchange 2007 Standard is there any database size limitation changes from when not in a cluster?  Do all of the same database size rules stay the same?

Per Microsoft you are limited to 5 databases of 16TB each, which is effectively limitless.

Its mostly recomendations by MS no hardcore statement ...

For Normal DB its 80-100GB and for Cluster its 200GB (to be on the safer side).

Recommendations for Configuring Storage Groups and Databases

We recommend that Exchange databases be approximately 50 gigabytes (GB) in size. For databases in storage groups that are not enabled for continuous replication, we recommend a maximum database size of 100 GB. For databases in storage groups that are enabled for continuous replication, we recommend a maximum database size of 200 GB

The (soft) database limits still apply - although you can only use LCR and SCR with standard edition, not CCR.
