You can do that, but the resulting file will be more bulky than the sid and 
contain the same amount of artifacts than the sid, so there is no gain. 

Converting to tiff is only useful to be able to load the images in other 
programmes with the same detail as the sid, but this information is less than 
a digitised tiff at the original resolution. However, I wonder if Yale has the 
originals saved as loss-less tiff and made the sids from those.
