    You are using the label roles correctly! I often refer to terse and verbose as option 1 and option 2. The EDGAR Filer Manual from the SEC tells us to use “different terse or verbose labels if the same element will appear with different labels....”

    Sadly, there are no real definitions for these label roles, but they do have an impact in the traditional SEC Viewer:
    Terse/Verbose - have no impact on the viewer; the fact value will be displayed as it is tagged
    Negated/Negated Terse - will render the XBRL fact value opposite of the fact value sign (this is often used when we reverse a fact value)
    Total - will place a line underneath the fact value in the viewer and should be used when a calculation relationship is built
