I thought of JPEG-XR too
Ok, so I looked up JPEG-XR, formerly known as WMPhoto (Windows Media Photo).

This is the conclusion from
The battle of formats is still ahead: although JPEG 2000 may be better then WMPhoto, itsí support is still not added to many popular programs (browsers, viewers, image editors, etc.). Efforts in this field may lead to WMPhoto domination despite worse compression possibilities.

Yes, JPEG-XR supports 16 Bit and lossless compression and is fairly fast in its encoding, but isn't it a pitty that it isn't even on par with JPEG2000 quality-wise?
