Are there any raster file formats that address this issue ?  I have not
found any.  If this is not to be addressed in TIFF 7.0, we may take
Niles B.O.t.E. design and begin generating (not for general interchange)
64-bit addressable TIFF-type images.  Anyone want to add to the design ?

I have heard hints of TIFF 7.0 in the works at Adobe.  Am I remembering
wrong, or wasn't there much more discussion on this list (or another ad
hoc one) prior to the release of the TIFF 6.0 spec ?  Does anyone know
if Adobe plans for any public comment period for TIFF 7.0 or, even
better, a discussion of what is desired in TIFF 7.0 ?  Perhaps I missed
it.

Using up all the numbers in the old Chicago song "25 or 6 to 4" ?

TIFF 6.0 - 6x7 = 42
TIFF 8.0 - 8x7 = 56  ?
