It is proprietary and undocumented. There seems to be some ad hoc information on the format if you search via Google though.

these represent the bone's rotation quaternion. warcraft3 often uses bezier splines (InTan and OutTan in .mdl is the 2 bezier control points) to ease-in and ease-out the animations
