Our (big) department has a standard set of FrameMaker templates, and we are
"NOT" allowed to change them. Now we're writing a department style guide,
and found e.g. that there is no paragraph tag for a literature list, and no
xref format for referencing the list items, like [1]. Of course we created
these formats (plus some others), and now we have to defend our decision.
How did others handle the need for special-purpose formats in a rigid

Thanks & regards,
