-1 on declaring things Serializable, especially if this is done everywhere.
Unless there is extensive testing and careful implementation, it is very,
very misleading to advertise this capability.  In addition, there are a
number of formats which are reasonable candidates.  Casting a particular
format in stone as the one true serialized format seems like a big mistake.

If you need to implement a serializable object, it is much better to mark
the field as transient and pick the wire format you really want to use from
a selection of alternatives.
