cf2cdm is a small infrastructure to translate between different CF data models, for example the ECMWF (e.g. vertical pressure levels are named level and have hPa as unit) and CDS (e.g. vertical pressure levels are named plev and have Pa as unit).

This is useful both on read to convert from the canonical data model to any other and on write to convert a generic CF dataset to canonical form.

In master we can transform the coordinates to the classic ECMWF data model (cf2cdm.datampodels.ECMWF) and to the CDS Common Data Model (cf2cdm.datampodels.CDS).

We only need to document this feature in the README.
