I am not sure that your definition of TIFF 7 is what others would agree is the "next logical step" for TIFF - but some things are definitely necessary (> 32bit offsets, Flate compression, etc.)

It is NOT a proprietary format - it is a completely open and publicly documented specification. It can even be extended and enhanced (and subsetted) such as in the PDF/X specifictions (http://www.cgats.org). Therefore, it is NOT proprietary.
