It is expected that these requests would be granted infrequently. With large and complex financial statements, a single iXBRL file may be too large for a web browser to handle.

XBRL allows computers to read financial information and use it in analytical tools, much like bar codes applied to merchandise are used for computerized inventory controls.
Additionally, big taxonomies such as IFRS obey specific rules of naming and labelling to ensure consistency within the schema.
A company that is deemed not current solely as a result of not submitting or posting an interactive data exhibit when required will be deemed current upon submitting or posting the interactive data.
There are four standard types of relationships supported by the definition linkbase. Taxonomies using XBRL Dimensions can define new dimensions, specify the valid values "domains" for dimensions, designate which dimensions apply to which business concepts through mechanisms called "hypercubes", and relate other taxonomy metadata labels, presentation information, etc.
