Yes, that's correct.  Adobe Reader 7.0 can read comments created 
in Acrobat 7, but it cannot create comments.  I think the 
annotation feature is a "value-add" that Adobe uses to sell its 
non-free Acrobat versions.

If you're using Adobe Acrobat, you have special powers.  I don't 
Adobe Reader can do it.
