I can respond from a Microsoft O365 perspective as I went through early 2016
Customer X put Office / Project / Visio 365 editions in their standard build and rolled it out across their entire estate. Discovery information (under SAM Baseline review) found it all and reported as such. Customer explained - if the person logging in had no access, they could not use these products and because it is a User license then the desktop based deployment was completely irrelevant. As you can imagine, Microsoft were not so keen on this approach, however it was successfully argued based on Microsoft Terms and Conditions for O365 and the customer considered compliant (based on active users). We ran this via 2 different Microsoft regions to get to this position - and it did get escalated to Head Office for their opinion also. (So well tested, feel happy to mention it.)
However - this was Microsoft... using Microsoft T&Cs - so i would suggest you need to check Adobe rules carefully!
