Do ArcGIS Runtime .NET license levels restrict something, or just not providing the capability?

I have a doubt regarding license restrictions for ArcGIS Runtime .NET 100.x:


Lite/Basic licenses levels do not have support for local layers (KML, Shapefiles, etc.) according to

But, what does it mean: they don't have that capability, or you're not allowed to use local layers at this license level?


1) If I put layers on localhost, or some local web server, am I allowed to use them in my App with Lite or Basic license?


2) Or, if I write my own KML parser, am I allowed to use it for local files with Lite or Basic license?


I'm not sure if my question is clear. This is what I mean: 10 years ago, Google Maps tiles were accessible to any app (today, they aren't), so you could use them in your own app, but actually you were not allowed to do so (you needed to use their API). That is my doubt here, does license level restricts something, or it just doesn't provide that capability?

And, if you provide that capability by yourself, you're not going to jail . Is that true?
