[oXygen-sdk] On-demand values for Form controls

Hello Nathan,

Yes, it's possible. By default, a form control gets its possible values 
from the schema. You can implement a SchemaManagerFilter [1] which reads 
a configuration file and contributes with values from that configuration 
file.

In Oxygen version 17.0 we've implemented such a SchemaManagerFilter 
ourselves [1] (it reads an XML configuration file) and we are already 
using it for DITA (amongt other frameworks). Inside the blog post 
Controlled Attribute Values for your DITA Project [3] you can see how 
this support is actually used for DITA and how you can extend it 
yourself (if you are using DITA).
