I just want to make the point that there are already many flavors of TIFF files that many standard "image viewer" applictions do not open. For example, old style JPEG, CIELab, JBIG compressed TIFF's, Tiled TIFF's, etc, etc. Whether we like it or not, that's the way TIFF is. Why change that philosophy now and create a new extension?
I don't recall that point being brought up.
