Let me add my support to the side that wants big-TIFF to be just as general as TIFF is.

If I want a restricted format, I can write in NITF which supports up to 18 GB right now.

As far as Endian issues, lets share the pain, and don't put it all on one platform to have to swap. As the number of multibyte sensors grows, I can see that all of my work in a few years will be 16bit/band image or greater. This will require swapping every pixel value all the time on read and write. Let me write what is convenient for my platform and read whatever is thrown at me.
