That's a religious discussion. The fact of the matter is that it is out there, however unfortunate and/or non-standard that may be.
I'm not in complete disagreement, I just wanted to point out that releasing a new standard (in this case TIFF 7.0) doesn't really solve the problem that the format is in use and "pretends" to be standard - at least not in the foreseeable future.
