Couldn't you just produce files with two samples, and 64 (or 32) bits each?
You mean 2 images in the file, one with the real part and the other with the imaginary? It is a nice solution.
I think what he means is rather than one image with one 128-bit complex sample per pixel, produce a single image with two 64-bit double-precision samples per pixel, treating one of these samples as the real part and one as the imaginary part. This should be possible to do in the TIFF format right now, without any sort of extensions.
