Thank you Quincey.
In the meantime, just to give you an idea, what we have done for now is to use application/x-bag as the MIME, in the absence of an HDF5 MIME. But when the HDF5 MIME does become available we would do something like
as BAG format uses HDF5 to provide the basic mechanism of data encapsulation and file I/O.
Thus the MIME will not only benefit HDF5 users directly but for others as well who use HDF5 to create file formats and are looking to exchange data over the web.

Unfortunately, I don't think there's any official MIME type for HDF5 currently. I've registered an issue for this though, and we'll put it into our work queue.
