I wasn't suggesting it actually does get changed. Just that in this instance, tiffextract would describe it better. But then for other functionality it contains, so does tiffcrop and tiffconvert (as well as tiffextract) - as it does all these things.

Please, note that tiffcrop is a part of libtiff for quite a some time (and it is part of stable branch of libtiff) and probably already is being used in scripts or called from programs, so it is not harmless to change its name. But everything is possible with a good reason, of course.
