For a library designed to deal with the weirdness of binary file formats, I'm surprised it does not support 24-bit integers of arbitrary alignment/sign.

Do you also support a non-template "endianness" parameter? Sometimes you don't know the endian-style of the file until you open it and read some value out of it.
