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?
