I put out the arguments for and against keeping the same file extension a few years ago. They're getting rediscovered and rehashed now. But if we (Adobe) just try to legislate the decision without support from the user and developer community, it won't get very far.

At this point, Adobe primarily leads by example and a few well-placed application notes. The TIFF specification is very old.
