To complement Sven's reply, I would just add that the TIFF
specification, section 7, page 26, recommends that TIFF editors
("applications that modify TIFF files") discards tags/fields/IFD they do
not understand. To be more precise, the wording is:
"It is unnecessary—and possibly dangerous—for an editor to copy fields
it does not understand because the editor might alter the file in a way
that is incompatible with the unknown fields."
