I'll take a look at your stuff over the next days or weeks and give it
a try on a number of TIFFs I have laying around here (mostly found on h
ttp://bitsavers.org mirrors).

I believe the best opportunity to go forward with TIFFs is to deal with
inaccuracies and to try to "cure" inaccuracies where possible, e.g.
date/time formats and their variations. You can devise rules to detect
and convert almost any strange date/time format to something
meaningful.

Still, trying to fix and convert TIFFs to follow a baseline rule makes
sense when it comes to long time preservation. I know it is (much more)
important for definitely binary image data from the past.

Cheers
Jürgen
