Can Super PAC Which Avoids Express Advocacy Coordinate with Presidential Campaign?

NYT:

Correct the Record, a group started by David Brock, a staunch ally of Hillary Rodham Clinton, is recreating itself as a stand-alone “super PAC” that has the ability to coordinate with her campaign….

The new version of Correct the Record will be able to communicate with federal campaigns and party committees, as it is not involved with independent expenditures.

I’d like to hear more about the theory behind a group whose major purpose is the election of a candidate for federal office being able to skirt the coordination rules by avoiding express advocacy.

UPDATE: Here is the group’s explanation: “Correct The Record, though a SuperPac, will not be engaged in paid media and thus will be allowed to coordinate with campaigns and Party Committees.”
