Frank, all:

Just wondering if there are any plans to move to using 64 bit offsets for large file support greater than four gig?

No, because the TIFF standard only allows for 32 bit offsets. Anything that used 64 bit offsets would have to be a completely new version of TIFF, or a different file format.
