My 2 cents :)
What could be done is to define a new TIFF-header. In stead of the magic number 42 the number 64 could be used. Further everywhere where 32bit numbers are used they are replaced with 64bit numbers. The rest of the specs does not need to change. Call the format TIFF64.
Disadvantage is that there will be 2 libtiff's to support. Maybe TIFF64 sources could be generated from the libtiff32 sources.
