There have been a few similar efforts.

One is the work in NCO -- not about CF per-se but about a way to translate
the netcdf data model to json -- once you've done that, the CF rules are
pretty much the same.

There was also an effort by Pedro Nunes at NESDIS/STAR:


and NCO now supports something (not sure the final state of that). The
discussion on sourceforge is here:


I'm not sure the status of either of those efforts, but hopefully we won't
have a third one!
