[Tig] SMPTE DPX

One of the things about the DPX standard that I've found maddening is  
that some variants (like monochrome) aren't supported by many  
programs that claim DPX compatibility.

We do a lot of archival monochrome work, usually 10 bit log 2K, and  
often have to end up in some RGB format (wasting a lot of storage  
space) in order to use, say, After Effects.

It would be nice if the SMPTE insisted that any product claiming DPX  
compatibility had true compatibility!
