I'd expect libtiff based software to generally work fine with that (with the 
exception of this bug of course, which is a rather convoluted way of using 
libtiff and the JPEG driver)

I see that support in libtiff to generate such images is relatively "recent" (4 
years ago) : https://trac.osgeo.org/gdal/ticket/4732
