A customization would need to be built for XMAX to support DITA to the same degree that XMetaL Author Enterprise does (it doesn't matter which version of DITA). We don't have any plans to do this.
At minimum that means providing XMAX with the DTDs. You could probably use the CSS and CTM files from XMetaL Author Enterprise as base upon which to build your XMAX DITA authoring solution. As XMAX is embedded in your application the rest of the GUI you have built might need to be modified if you want to provide specific support for DITA-only functionality. I don't think much of the code that drives the DITA authoring functionality we provide with XMetaL Author Enterprise could be reused directly with an XMAX host (whatever you have embedded XMAX inside of). This would include everything at the Application level. Some of the Document level code might be reusable.
