Exporting RTK Vector Data

I've already directed this matter to a support person, but thought it'd be a good idea to get it out on the board for discussion.

I'd like to be able to export RTK vector data with covariance information from the LS so I can include those vectors in a weighted network adjustment. I'd greatly prefer that the export format conform to an existing standard, and the NGS gfile format (http://www.ngs.noaa.gov/FGCS/BlueBook/pdf/Annex_N.pdf) seems like a logical choice. This format was developed for use in bluebooking; it's used in OPUS extended output, and Star*Net can import a gfile without alteration.

The developer version is currently able to export NGS g-files. I'm curious what other formats might be of interest. I'm new to the StarNet format but the it looks very clean. Carlson's SurvNet uses it as well as StarNet (of course). Are there any other universally recognized vector formats you might be interested in?
