HDF5 data alignment


I have a few question regarding data alignment and and attributes.
Is there a way to force binary data to be aligned on 1MiB (for instance)?
Also just to be sure, when using the parallel library, a lock is used
on creation, but not for independent read/writes (which means that on
NFS it could lead to corrupt datasets)?
