It will let you install on single server, but generally when you are buying that style you will also be doing some mission critical that has some sort of fail over for high availability.  Meaning, nothing will stop you, but no one configures it in this manner if they do not need to.

Hi,

Per processor licence is often used for public web-sites, and where the cost of cals is more than the cost per processor. I think that this happens around 50 - 75 cals depending ...

So no, it will install on single servers.

Before the licencing changed for SQL 2012, and a processor was a socket rather than a core, it made sense on multi-cored processors and having multiple instances licenced etc was good economics.
