Maybe that is because EXIF private tag values would conflict with the public tag space?

1. They don't.

What I mean is conflicts between EXIF private tag values and private tag values in the normal TIFF IFD. EXIF tag values are not registered TIFF tags since the whole IFD is private. There is nothing to prevent an overlap.

2. Even if they did, obviously standard TIFF encoders and decoders are able to deal with it so whatever code they use is able to handle it in the API.

What do you mean by "standard TIFF encoders". Is there something more standard than libtiff?
