Thanks for your prompt reply John. I was thinking that keeping an
individual geometry as an "atomic" unit would simplify life.
The structure of a WKB blob is pretty simple and I don't think would
require an external library, but using WKB for storage is really just an
optimization. If the binary storage is a concern, the corresponding
"Well Known Text" format is an String representation of the same
e.g. "POINT (10 10)", "LINESTRING (10 10 , 20 20, 30 40 )"

It sounds like a good idea to add support for the "OGC's Well-Known
Binary format" into the CDM by writing an IOSP. That probably should
be seperate from this proposal, which focuses on a netcdf encoding
that doesnt require further libraries to understand.
