Tom Selling over at Accounting Onion seems to believe the IFRS "threat" is over.

From where I'm standing, it appears XBRL is the only viable piece of the IFRS puzzle which has been embraced by CPAs and firms alike.

It will be interesting to see how it unfolds but I think it is safe at this point to assume that Cox's roadmap will be adjusted and/or completely ditched.
