That's right; each backend is basically stand-alone.  Of course it shares a
rough outline with the runtime object model and XML data-model, just by

If you see concrete opportunities for sharing, by all means write it up.

I'm sure it's going to come down to the models being just different enough,
either because of historical warts or just reasonably different application
functionality, that they data models will "want" to be different.  Not to
discourage, but it feels like an extra level of effort to try to keep two
application's data models in some sort of sync.

At the same time, I'd be really interested to know how different from the
XRBL model gnucash is.  I could just look at the specs, I guess.
