There is no way to mark the 2nd, 3rd and 4th bands as RGB in a TIFF file.
If you were to store it as Red, green, blue, pan, nir then at least
applications could use the first 3 bands as rgb if it was marked as
photometric rgb.  If you want to put Pan first, you might be better off
just treating it as greyscale (min-is-black), the default.
