I understand that libtiff is written in C, but I believe that a TIFF specification should not assume anything about implementation languages.

Some possible implementation languages do not even support unsigned types.

If BigTIFF defines unsigned 64-bit quantities, it will make life for Java applications more difficult and possibly slower, although not impossible.

Is there an alternative to using unsigned 64-bit values to access large data?
