Speaking for myself, I certainly didn't realise you were intending to
solve these two different problems. Serialisation and binary data access
are clearly quite different issues (though it makes sense for the one to
layer on the other). Perhaps you should (a) be clearer in your
propaganda and (b) give the two parts different names?
