A new file extension for netCDF files?

When I realized that I might have to use (gasp!) CDF files, I decided to
change the file extension I use for netCDF files to ".ncd".  Three letters
seems to be more "standard" than two, although that may be as anachronistic
as 80 column cards, oops, I mean 80 byte records.
