The 12-bit jpeg format is used and known in the medical context only, it is very rarely used in fact (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jpeg#Medical_imaging:_JPEG.27s_12-bit_mode).
I wonder if it's worth while the effort. 

I don't believe (although I'm not certain) that tiff is proprietary. It is copyrighted by Adobe, which is not the same thing, and it is not patented.

What you can do to avoid tiff is this: save your scan into tiff and convert them straight away into png with Imagemagick: $ mogrify -format tiff  *.png
