16bit TIFF vs 14bit RAW

Hey everyone, so if the recent XT4 rumors are true. The XT4 will allow for images to be recorded in a 16bit TIFF format (likely just as a 16bit container for a true 14bit file.)

What do people think about using TIFFs as a way to retain near RAW levels of image data, and full bit depth; while sidestepping controversial RAW image conversion software.

I realize nothing will likely replace RAW but the inclusion of this new format seems to open up a lot of flexibility.
