100 years from now someone comes across a storage device containing two documents - one in PDF/A and one in TIFF. There are no current "software" products that can read either format, and so one must be written from specification. ASSUMING that the specifications/standard documents are available - which would be easier to implement from scratch WITH NO REFERENCE IMPLEMENTATION.

Hmm. Having reverse engineered a few file formats in my time, if I stumbled across a raster file or a PDL file that I wanted to read, I know which one I'd choose - the one with the pixels.
