Well there you have the specifics. Section 10 is for CCITT Huffman, so I would say that Huffman's can (should) not contain EOLs, but G3/G4s should.

I'm curious - where in the spec does it indicate strips have to start with
You may interpret this from TIFF 6.0 section 11 "CCITT Bilevel Encoding"
Strips and Tiles.
When CCITT bi-level encoding is employed, interaction with
stripping (Section 3) and tiling (Section 15) is as follows:
a. Decompose the image into segments-individual pixel arrays representing
the desired strip or tile configuration. The CCITT encoding
applied most flexibly if the segments each have a multiple of 4
b. Individually encode each segment according to the specified CCITT
encoding, as if each segment is a separate raster-graphic image.
Means strips should be encoded independent from each other.
I do not have access to the CCITT spec in the moment, but I guess they are
telling an image must start with EOL.
Still section 10 tells no EOLs needed...
So I would expect T.4 TIFFs containing no EOLs at all are legal.
