Why is it that the TIFF6.0 spec says that TIFFTAG_BITSPERSAMPLE, TIFFTAG_SAMPLEFORMAT, and some other tags are specified on a per component basis, but TIFFGetField and TIFFSetField only get and set a single scalar value?

Are there any plans to fix this inconsistency between the SPEC and the implementation?
