Why is that? I don't understand how this could be more helpful than

A ".tiff" is the same type as ".tif", just like ".jpeg" and ".jpg" or
".html" and ".htm".  There are three different extensions in use for
the portable anymap file format, four for SGI image files and even
five for Alias|Wavefront pix/matte files, I could expand this list
further but I think you get the point.
