Chris, Frank,

Bottom line: I think the change would cause more problems than it would solve.

It might solve the specific case they are describing (sounds like mapping data), but would likely create more problems for the larger TIFF user community.

I agree.


OK, with Bob, Chris and Joris negative on the idea, and no support I think I'm going to shelve this change. I must say, I felt some trepidation about it, though it is the same behavior of a number of commercial tiff viewers (including any GDAL based application).
