If you are willing to file the document, there is nothing wrong with doing so. All the plaintiff is asking you to do is the actual physical task of taking the document to the court and depositing them with the court clerk, and getting the file stamped copies for your records, and for the plaintiff.
While this may not be preferable as if there are any problems you cannot correct them (you cannot change or correct the plaintiff's document (I am not talking about making a correction such as a typo in the case number, but rather I am talking about a signature line, or filling out the proper box for the dismissal, or some other substantive issue). Whereas if the plaintiff went to the clerk's office and filed, he could correct them right there.
But, in general, this kind of document is filed without any problems and you can do so without any hassle.
Do make sure to bring copies (you will want at least 2 additional copies (one for you and one for the plaintiff).
