A bit of experience-based opinion to add here, and that, in a word, would be 'caution'.
With the exception of such an agreement from your dealer, the odds that the warranty firm will still be around in 5 to 7 years are likely slim. Combine that risk with the obligatory fine print. I say this having been burned in the past (by disappearing companies). That business is tremendously profitable at the expense of many a victim. An agreement from the dealer (at a reasonable premium over the "who-are-you" outfits) is worth it IMO.
