My vote is firmly for keeping ".tif".
Users of these files are not bread-and-butter users,and will all use tools that have the latest BigTIFF compiles in them. Besides, it's not going to be hard to look at the file size and see that a BigTIFF-capable tool is required.
Besides, if a user tries to open a BigTIFF file with a regular TIFF tool, they will need to get a BigTIFF tool no matter what the file extension is.
