While I still think it likely YCCK in JPEG is/can-be/could-at-some-time-be produced saving CMYK imagery as JPEG in Photoshop, the exact origin is not the issue. The issue is, we have at least one JPEG colorspace that I know of that has no equivalent in TIFF, being YCCK. There's no doubt about that, I've several items in my JPEG testfile library to prove it, and a codec handling them that proves my understanding of these files.
