Which is going to cause mucho confusion when a user is trying to open SOMETHING.TIF with a tool they expect can process TIFF (which they know is implied by .TIF).

If there's any doubt that these are TIFF files, IMHO, the file format should have never been associated with TIFF - call it BigFileFormat (BFF)... or some such.

Files ending in .tif, cannot, in many cases, be processed by programs that can see .tif in their file open dialogs. This is just another case. 90% of the programs out there can't handle tiles, or 16-bit images, or layers, or JPEG compression, or LogLuv compression, etc, which are all valid TIFF files - why is this any different?
