Hi dev,

I have open an issue http://hub.qgis.org/issues/9810 and a pull request 

The NetCDF provided extra dimensional information. This information 
provides metadata on each band. These metadat can be used to explain the 
name of each band.

For example, the bands of a NetCDF file represents the temperature at a 
given depth. For the user, it is easier to select a band with depth 
information, rather than the number.

If the GDAL version is equal or greater than 1.10.0, the band name is 
generated with the extra_dim information.
