No. There is nothing wrong on having:
f['/entry/data_000001'].name = '/entry/data_000001'
f['/entry/data_000001'].parent = '/entry'

because when you retrieve the value you get the dataset referred to.

When you write a link to a file or directory, do you call that file or 
directory from the directory containing the link by the link name or by 
the destination name? One *always* use the link name. To me is something 
h5py should directly deal with, if not I will deal with it myself.

Best regards,
