I know little about what JPEG 2000 supports. TIFF is a random access lossless (usually) format. The actual order that data is written depends on the writer. For normal TIFFs the data could be output in any order preferred by the writer. There are format specifications based on TIFF (e.g. FAX formats) which require that the data be written in a particular order so that it may be read progressively, or so that it can be read in an "interlaced" order.

You may want to look at the PNG format. I believe that it supports a progressive interlaced format.
