RDA postponed (according to Twitter)

Well, according to the “definitive” Twitter feed, RDA will not be implemented until 2013 at the earliest, and they also want several changes. I can only hope that a reconsideration of the purpose of cataloging rules takes place, including those suggested by Michael Gorman at the rda@yourlibrary conference. His idea of a basic level with much more simplicity, and then attach it to other standards based on the needs of specific communities makes a lot of sense to me, and it seems imminently achievable.
