comment Compressing structural information in PDB files
Thanks for the pointer. I asked my original questions to get answers from people knowledgeable in the domain of structural biology on what information in PDB files is redundant and can expressed more compactly. In addition to providing answers about that, respondents have asked some reasonable questions that were unrelated to the structural biology, and I've answered in kind in my edits. I would have asked in Bioinformatics, but that forum is still just a proposal.

comment Compressing structural information in PDB files
Those are good points about A) needing not only dihedral angles but also distances between each atom and B) temperature factor being extraneous in NMR structures. I think the usefulness of compressing PDB files is probably best suited for a separate discussion, but I appreciate this answer. Definitely informative.
