I think that it's important that any new large file support remain as close to the old spec as possible, so as to minimise the work needed for application support. Most important is that any file which does not in fact exceed 2GB must be readable by old code.
But what we should do when the small file is opened for update an becomes larger 4GB? It can be quite complicated to change the formats on the fly.
