To my knowledge, this is not on the planning yet.

See the link Jeremias provided yesterday. I indeed pointed out that  
you should specify the eventual target format.
If you were to use one area tree, with 'application/pdf' as target,  
you can render that same file to PDF and to TIFF.
The differences between the two should then be restricted to a  
minimum (while the TIFF output will be different from the result you  
would get when rendering to TIFF directly).
