Subject: Re: [tax] tax administrators' positionpaper

I very much agree with Philip's reluctence to make recommendations at this
point.  It seems to me that we don't as yet have any strong evidence to
make a case for one direction over another, other than for XBRL, some
jurisdictions are starting to use it.  Perhaps it may be better to frame
this section as an  "emerging directions" overview.

Hmm.  Looks like I read the wrong paper.

Having now re-read the 7 April version, I have one general comment.  I
wonder if we shouldn't be really cautious about "recommendations" at this
stage.  We are still, as a committee, working through the implications of
how to get these different standards to deliver a workable TaxXML
solution, and until we get closer to a conclusion it seems unwise to
recommend what that conclusion is going to be.

Surely it would be more useful to tax administrators out there if - to
repeat my comment in my previous email - we concentrated on analysing and
explaining the overlaps and fitness-for-purpose of the different standards
being proposed.
