FrameMaker 7.2 DITA support is "Based on a core plugin developed and
maintained by Leximation" (quoted from the DITA > About window). In fact,
my FrameMaker console tells me that the beta period for this component has
expired, and that I should contact Leximation for an update (even though it
was downloaded from Adobe).
FrameMaker 7.x "Apply Master Pages" is also based on a plug-in.
