Leaving units to modules is a good idea. But for now, modules are just
a proposal, the specification doesn't mention them.

Figshare (figshare.com) accepts files up to 250 MB, which should be
enough for example trajectories.

BTW, once there is a definite 1.0 specification of H5MD, I propose
to store it on Figshare as well, for archiving. That makes it possible
to refer to a definite version with a permanently valid DOI.
Sites like Savannah or Github are great for development, but they
don't offer sufficient persistence guarantees for archiving.
