In any case, when it comes to a recommendation for writers, would you agree that recommending them to stick with the 'intrinsic' range of the samples, as I explained it, is best and most likely to lead to good interchange (as far as there is interchange of floating point image data, at all)?

floating point *elevation* data!

rescaling in the file to some "natural image range" loses all the value of the actual elevations.
