I'm a bit unclear if I should be able to use COMPRESSION_LZW in conjunction with "BigTIFF" (ie. TIFFOpen with "w8" rather than "w")

You should be. We were using LZW as a default back when I added bigtiff support to our software so I am fairly certain it was at least working a good while ago. At least with well structured files, I never tried a single huge strip. Do you have reason to believe it's not working?
