It's a whole other story for fundamentally new compression modes that we firmly believe are here to stay. I believe we should try and agree on integration for JPEG2000, and old and new JBIG.

A problem with JPEG2000 and JBIG is that they are covered by patents. The existing compression schemes supported by libtiff are now believed to be patent free.
