Classic Double Entry Accounting and XML syndication feeds

Notes on RSS 2.0 elements that could be usable for accounting

RSS item
title - comments?
link - the URL for the scanned image or document source
guid - guid of transaction or account
comments - as usual in transactions
author - user
category - an optional sub-element of item. It has one optional attribute, domain, a string that identifies a categorization taxonomy - is suitable for accounts, category and or dimensions.

What about other accounting tags? A recent idea is to follow the RSS 2.0 spec. and use the OPML namespace to add OPML outlining capabilities. I've recently posted a message to opmldev to see if anyone can guide me.

There should also be tags for quantities etc. Useful schemas as of fall 2002 could be found in arapxml.

This is a private research looking at the possibility on using weblog technology, for instance OPML and syndication feeds (RRS and ATOM), to display and distribute accounting information. Muy view on Classic Double Entry Accounting (CDEA) is based on Luca Pacioli (Venezia 1494) and Object Managment Group (OMG) General Ledger standard (Tokyo 1999). In the latter this blogs author was one of the projects founders and project manager.
