Yep. They share a lot in common. The diference between the is exactly as 
you pointed above:

1-The position into a pipeline
2-The I/O between them.

2 points:

1-Nobody is telling you cannot use your own serializers.
2- I agree the current standard serializer has bugs. I tried to fix 
them. I met problems into xalan internals and .... well, it is a very 
long story. Few weeks ago, I spent most part of 15 nights trying to fix 
that (weekend included). I went into xalan internals. Can you help us to 
fix them.? Your help will be very welcomed!
