XBRL final rule imminent

Well, we've got something wrong there, it seems. It wasn't the US SEC meeting deliberating on the final XBRL rule that was scheduled for 10 December, it was a Sunshine Notice to announce the SEC meeting of 17 December. But what's a week in the greater scheme of things ...

Speaking of which - it's interesting to note that one of the seven milestones on the road to IFRS adoption in the US is going to be improvement in the ability to use interactive data for IFRS reporting (p27 ff). Specifically, the SEC would look for a more detailed IFRS taxonomy in its 2011 review, presumably containing standard industry extensions. Thus, XBRL has just been hiked up to a critical priority in a strategic project.
