How about specifying an H5MD module "units/si" for this purpose? That
module could constrain the format of units, e.g., to the format of
the udunits [1] package suggested by you earlier.

This is a good idea!

I recently gave a talk on git-annex [2], a tool to manage large data
using git without checking them into git. We could provide links to
the example data files in the h5md repository pointing to a few web
servers. That would allow convient partial or full retrieval of
example trajectories.

I am not sure how much storage we have on Savannah. Who of you could
provide a mirror for these example files? What maximum size are we
limiting the files to?
