Sure ;-)

However, we also have to consider that serializers basically produce 
binary data (e.g svg2png) for which the encoding has no meaning. So 
should there be a new kind of serializers (TextSerializer ?) that gets a 
Writer instead of an OutputStream ?

This would allow for the encoding to be handled directly and totally by 
the pipeline engine, which would use the proper encoding to build the 
TextSerializer's Writer.
