- finally include 'new' style jpeg in the new spec
- finally properly document the deflate compression in the new spec
Revising the spec. is yet another issue (which I'm working on).
- discussing human-friendly bloat ASCII tag names that are STILL code unfriendly, despite of the fact that nowadays hardware doesn't punish bloat stuff that severely anymore, by there very nature
- start so many things all over again that you're bound to repeat history and cummulate all the scruff all over again in a completely new file format.
We don't have to start over - but we have learned some things since the original TIFF spec. was written.
