At Joris' suggestion, I have registered a custom tag with Adobe. It's 50784. (it's type is ASCII) The revised Alias Layers In Tiff spec follows. Is this now sufficient to get placed along with the other extended tags on http://www.awaresystems.be/imaging/tiff/tifftags/private.html, with the docs below attached?

Allthough I haven't looked at it in close detail, yet, it should be quite sufficient. Your may expect your tag to be added to the list, shortly, with an appropriate summary, and your full specification should be added to the documentation section (http://www.awaresystems.be/imaging/tiff/tifftags/docs.html), along with a link to 'Alias Sketchbook'. If it turns out I'm missing some details or something, I will contact you privatly.

Kudos to you for registring the tag and being open about your data! It is indeed the sensible thing to do, and getting added to the tag reference does yield additional visibility for your work.
