Thanks -- that paper (2nd link) is a good reference, including a
format comparison table on pages 8-9.

I see the paper claims that "HDF5 is compatible with all of the
competing formats discussed in Item 10b in that those data models can
be expressed in terms of HDF5.", with one of the "competing formats"
being FITS.

Cheers,

James.
