    In reading the I-D, it says on page 8:

                                                          An IFD can be at
       any location in the file after the header but must begin on a word
       boundary.

    However, I do not find anywhere whether a word is two bytes or four bytes.
    If a sender assumed two byte alignment but sends to a 32-bit architecture
    receiver that assumes four byte alignment, this could cause an
    interoperability problem if the 32-bit architecture doesn't allow unaligned
    references. Right?

    Should I make a public comment to the IETF during this IETF Last Call?

    Thanks,
    Tom

    The IESG has received a request from the Internet Fax Working Group to
    consider File Format for Internet Fax <draft-ietf-fax-tiff-fx-09.txt>
    as a Draft Standard, obsoleting RFC 2301.

    The IESG will also consider publication of Tag Image File Format (TIFF)
    - image/tiff MIME Sub-type Registration
    <draft-ietf-fax-tiff-regbis-02.txt> as a Best Current Practices RFC,
    obsoleting RFC2302.

    The IESG plans to make a decision in the next few weeks, and solicits
    final comments on this action. Please send any comments to the
    iesg@ietf.org or ietf@ietf.org mailing lists by January 2, 2001.
