Of course, you are free to continue customization as long as you want, all the elements can be customized at any point.
All branded registration sites also support prefilling the form by using a POST request. Furthermore a hidden RFID field was is available on all registration sites. It can be used to assign an RFID card to the registering customer. Attention: If the RFID card already exists in the system, the customer will be added without the RFID card.
Here is an example of how to prefill a registration page:
