The whole rationale i believe, is having meaningful types associated to your 
values so that the type checker can do its job. i.e. you don't start mixing a 
hash (in binary form) and a random piece of file.

My only problem with the Serialize instance, is that dependencies (cereal in 
this case) trickle through to the user of the API, which would be solved by 
Thomas' suggestion.
