I would be all in favor of this second, more clean, more logical, and less
trouble-prone approach.

I hope this very interesting discussion remains alive and open. To hopefully
help out, I dug up a list of possibly related archived mailing list threads.

I plan to make 64bit TIFF the first topic in the 'index by topic' archive
section, but I'll have to invest some time splitting the portal over several
pages first, 'cause the portal page is already so long as to become a bit
clumsy, I think.

Future's so bright, gotta wear shades. ;-)
