I see the note on that page, but I have absolutely no idea what
they are talking about.  So far as I can tell, the only thing that even
refers to dates is the creation date, which universally uses four
digit years in the TIFF standard format. There is nothing in the
libtiff package, or in the tools, that has any implicit century logic.

I have send an inquiry to Koos Schut, the apparent source of
the item, for further details.
