[http://www.xdmf.org/ XDMF] is an XML-based format for describing how associated HDF5 data is arranged. This provides the information needed by visualisation programs to render the data, and the format is supported by both VisIt and ParaView.

If Carpet could write out such a file in combination with its existing HDF5 output, VisIt and ParaView (at least) would be able to render Carpet data without having an additional plugin. I don't know the relative efficiency of the existing Carpet VisIt plugin and the XDMF reader, and I don't know how well the XDMF VisIt reader handles mesh-refined data, so these things should be looked it.
