Does anyone want to attempt to impartially summarize the key arguments for and against keeping the extension as ".tif"?

I'm assuming that minimizing customer confusion and inconvenience is main thing that we're all aiming for.

(Incidentally, I'd like throw into the ring "TIFF2" as the name, and ".tf2" as the extension, if we decide to do a new extension. "BigTIFF" and ".btf" sounds a little goofy, 8-byte TIFF and ".tf8" is a little too technical.)
