Topic: Writing files from a Reader plugin?

I read today about a company who is selling an add-on for enhancing forms in Acrobat. As part of this product, they are (apparently) distributing a plug-in for Acrobat Reader, which allows users of these forms to *save filled forms locally, as PDF files*. I called their sales desk and verified this claim.

see http://www.cardiff.com/products/pdf/faq.asp

I know I've read several places about Adobe's strict licensing agreement as far as developing plug-ins for Acrobat Reader, which prohibits writing files. My question is--what kind of deal could this company have with Adobe? Is there a possibility to pay a per-copy or other licensing fee, to allow me to develop a plug-in for Reader which can (legally) save files on the user's PC?
