K-5 overheat indicator - what is it for?

I was filming in a warm environment and after some time I noticed the warning. I had not looked at the view finder for 7-10 minutes (I had all set on the tripod with loupe installed). So I have no idea how long the warning had been on. Also I needed to finish the shoot few more minutes.
So what does happen when warning get ignored like this? Does anybody have something broken due to overheating?

Camera will stop, it's in your instruction manual in the video section
