I agree with Frank that a solution to extend TIFF rather than replace it is preferable (i.e. lets make rev 7.0 rather than TIFF64). However, I think it's a little premature to begin making specific suggestions. First we have to agree on some goals and a general approach, no? It seems like there will be a fair struggle ahead just to establish a procedure for accomplishing these desired changes to the TIFF spec. Unfortunately, I have no experience in this regard and therefore no concrete suggestions on where to begin. Anyone else able to take up some leadership here?
