is it correct for tiff-readers to make assumptions about TIFF-Tag default values?

In my case i notice that bilevel images saved from Adobe Photoshop 5 does not contain some baseline tags (e.g. FILLORDER). FILLORDER is defaulted to 1, so can i use this if not specified or should i throw an error?!


Some tags have default values and it is not an error. Actually we have a special function TIFFVGetFieldDefaulted() which works in the same way as TIFFVGetField() but also returns default value if the tag is not set in image and default is anticipated.
