I've worked out how to implement the v11 recornrm model in v12 and allow the correction file norm to be a free parameter. This is done through a new model recorn which has parameters the spectrum number and the correction norm. It is implemented as a mixing model though it doesn't actually do anything to the model spectrum - just changes the correction norm stored in the dataset object. It has to be done as a mixing model to ensure that the XSFunctions library stays free of symbol references to xspec internals - mixing models are not included in XSFunctions but have their own library. This model will be included in the release planned for early November.
