But SWT should get serializer from its own sitemap - don't you think? 
Otherwise, if it will use current sitemap, and current sitemap overrides 
some of the serializers, results will not be what is expected.

And if in nested sitemap you use SWT and want it to access locally 
declared serializers - then you should declare SWT in the same sitemap 
too. WDYT?
