When you say 'file offset' I presume you mean strip offset, or an offset the TIFF write process has to use to place header information at the end of the file. It seems to me that if the header were at the start of the file, then the size limitation is moot [except that the bytes per strip are also limited to a [signed?unsigned?] integer. Although I don't know if it is possible to ensure that the header data is at the start of the file.
