That document is very old

What I said.

and describes just the brief outlines of the container format and an 8/8/8 bit encoding used for thumbnails.

Also what I said.

Except for the brief outline, it is totally irrelevant for all cameras released.

It still gets you to the components in the file and the embedded JPG, along with all the SPP settings and camera metadata.  How is that "irrelevant"?  If you are making a Quciklook plugin, or anything that just wants the JPG it's still quite handy.  Otherwise you'd really be hunting for what was where!

I know you would like more about conversion, I would too.  But the conversion information is distinct from parsing the format of the file itself to get at the data blocks.
