The CharacterCodingException don't necessary to be assertSame() for 
serialization test, because it has no predefined constants:).

I think the classes commonly needs to override readResolve() method to 
implement predefined constants serialization properly, so that it is 
easy to find all the candidates from the JavaDoc page of serilization 
form. But, of course, readResolve() is not a suffient condition:(.
