[vtkusers] File format: DataArray's from external files?

Hi there,

I'm working on some particle data for which I have several time
steps. I'm creating a separate XML file for each time step, but there
is some data that is persistent for all time steps, for example
the radius of each particle. Rather than adding the radius data
to each file for each time step, I would love to create a separate
file that holds the radius data, then have every timestep's data
file reference that external file -- something like:

<DataArray type="Float32" Name="radius" format="ascii" file="radius.dat">

Anyways, I tried this and it didn't work, so I was wondering if
the VTK format had support for this sort of thing at all?
