There should be no expectation of the software's version and the soname matching. It's quite possible that tiff 5.x and tiff 6.x could all still have libtiff.so.5. For a good explanation of all this, check out the libtool documentation.
Sure, but given the rate at which things change in libtiff, we could also have a libtiff policy of only updating the major version when the ABI changes. :)
