Customizing Akoma Ntoso: modularization, restrictions, extensions


In this document we presented several types of customization possibilities for the Akoma Ntoso schema. Throughout the document, we tried to be very clear of what are the customization options that still leave the affected documents within the Akoma Ntoso document space, as declared by the fundamental rule for customizing Akoma Ntoso: that any document that is correct with regard to the custom rules must be also correct (in validity and spirit) with regard to the full Akoma Ntoso schema). While XML Schema and possibly even Schematron can do much to verify that a customization has been done properly, there are controls that simply cannot be done automatically, and require a careful human eye to validate and approve.
