MIME type for HDF 5


I was looking for information if there are any specific mime types defined for HDF5 formats with hdf extension, such as defined for HDF4 (application/x-hdf http://reference.wolfram.com/mathematica/ref/format/HDF.html\).
The goal here is to identify if there is such a mime type specified which can then be used to define a mechanism to define MIME types for files based on HDF5. For example, for a BAG (Bathymetry Attributed Grid https://marinemetadata.org/references/bag\) file the MIME can then be defined as application/x-hdf;subtype=bag in line with IANA standards (http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc4288\).
