They may do this because some TIFF files are created with the wrong setting and users complain.

They may do this because 'it seems that these popular applications always assume the normal case'.

Food for thought, I think. Your universal reasoning 'it's not a bug, it's a compatibility feature', consistently results in propagating the bug. In the end,

Please do not attribute to me the bug that other packages support. Do not shoot the messenger. Software I maintain attempts to adhere to the specifications.
