"you wouldn't be able to use it with"
That's true, eveyrthing has to come in through other means, the scanner technically is invisible to the OS and other apps, as far as any standard hardware drivers go.

I can't see Fujitsu being quote that cheap and stupid, so I'll throw in the rash guess that ABBYY originally made a sweetheart deal with them along the lines of "We'll give you our software for free if you make sure folks MUST use it to access your hardware." That giving Fujitsu a zero development cost, and ABBYY a captive audience for upgrades to fuller/newer/better versions.

Now THAT scenario makes sense, sadly.
