Proposed Edited Recommendations
A Proposed Edited Recommendation is an update to a RECOMMENDATION containing proposed edits. These are published for public review and commentary before the RECOMMENDATION itself is changed, in order that potential affected stakeholders have the opportunity to ascertain the consequences of the edits for them. They will then be able to provide feedback that will enable XBRL International to determine the best time to implement the updates (or possibly even not to implement the updates) while causing the least disruption to the marketplace.
A Proposed Edited Recommendation is issued only where it is believed that a change to a RECOMMENDATION could affect conforming processors. It is not issued for simple errata corrections.
For further details on this process please see "Modifying an XII Recommendation"
Match Filters 1.0 - October 30, 2013
This specification is an extension to extension to the XBRL Variables Specification. It defines syntax for filters that condition upon matching the value of an aspect of a fact to the same aspect of other facts.
The proposed edits are to clarify the behaviour when the @variable is bound to non-fact(s) or to facts that are not consistent in the value of the covered aspect. Also included in the 2013-10-30 udpate is to allow the filter to return a matching item where there is a match against one or more items in a sequence. In the current specification the filter returns a matching item only if there is a match against every item in a sequence. The behaviour from the existing specification remains the default, thus maintaining backward compatibility. Typical uses are where XPath quantified expression behaviour is required when selecting items.
