Custom Axis and Domain

    Hi Daisy!

    In bringing this up to our XBRL experts, here's what I got in response.

    In general, we recommend trying to avoid extensions whenever possible, especially if there is a standard tag that can be used, especially so with axis/domains. This helps increase consistency and comparability. However, there are some circumstances where it will be required to extend an axis/domain in order to differentiate, based on the presentation of a document.
    TL;DR - Essentially we say try to avoid it, but if it is needed, it is okay to extend, even if its an axis or domain.
    Hope that helps. Let me know if you have any other questions. Best!
