I agree there, in our implementation we had to make more or less the  
same utilities classes.

The ValueHelper used to serialize deserialize introduces quite some  
dependencies through Text and Base64 classes.

Having them in API is probably too late :) but an independent package  
à la "commons-*.jar" may be a good idea.
