Hmm, got a reference to that? It wasn't immediately apparent in my reading

What's the turnaround time for that? Taking weeks or months isn't really

Another thing I'm worried about is simply adding to the confusion of 
"what is a tiff file". There are few tiff readers/writers that support
the entire feature set of tiff, and many broken implementations out there.
There's an advantage of starting from a clean slate, and not having to
worry about existing baggage.
