Here's the request from Hiroshi Tamura (Ricoh, co-chair of
IETF Internet Fax WG) to the editors of the TIFF-FX spec to
work on a quick turnaround (before the Internet-Drafts
deadline for the IETF December 2001 meeting) on a new version
with all TIFF-FX profiles in one document but TWO different
- image/tiff - Profiles S and F (b/w only) - existing MIME type
- image/tifx - all other profiles - new MIME type to be registered

No mails so far. I comment it.
At first, we need new two or more I-Ds.
- Revised tiff-fx document
- New or Revised registration document for image/tiff or/and
new MIME type.
At least, those documents should be available prior to December IETF
The sooner, the better.
Next, implementation tests.
According to the I-Ds or revised I-Ds after getting some consensus
at the meeting or in our ML, the tests should be done.
New MIME type tests must be included.
It may be better to include the test for Profile S and F
with the use of image/tiff.
At the earliest, they will be done in January or February, I think.
After that, the final I-Ds will be availble.
License issues should be clarified in parallel.
TIFF-FX editors and the people who support it should comment for it.
