I'm +1 on cloud-optimized=true over cog

And I do think we should formalize it into a spec, starting with the gdal
details as the base.

I started a repo ages ago https://github.com/cogeotiff/cog-spec but never
got anywhere past porting the GDAL page over, as I got overtaken by other
tasks :(

But doing it in its own repo had mostly been since OGC hadn't established
an actual geotiff spec / repo, so I'd say it probably makes sense to make
an extension for COG of some sort that builds on
https://github.com/opengeospatial/geotiff/ and hopefully is even in the
same repo.
