But, in the long run, a real 64-bit image file format is probably needed. Would the current compressors (LZW, JPEG, etc) scale to 64-bit images, though? That is, can you even compress a > 2GB image using the standard JPEG library?

If tiled formats are standard (entirely reasonable with files this large) the the present compressors will do fine.
