Is Adobe Reader's ability to fill out tax forms something only it can
do because the file format and API are undocumented, or just because
the Open Source PDF readers have not yet implemented the feature?

If such tax forms depend on undocumented trade secrets, it's time to
complain to your elected representatives.  It's not right that the
citizenry should have to depend on proprietary software to file their
tax returns.
