I concur, at least for TIFF6. If a compressed palette is generally useful, it should be included in TIFF7 or BigTIFF or whatever the next version of the standard is called (by the way, how is it coming? There was a flurry of messages for a while months ago and then nothing more)
BigTIFF seems to only have 2 people working on it: Steve Carlsen and myself. Nobody else has been updating the TWIKI page or responding with any testing results.
I'm still working on a spec update - but it's TIFF 6.1, not 7.0.
