Well, since serialization support is entirely
contained in function templates, you don't need
any actual definition till POI (I might be wrong here,
but I guess I'm not.) This can help reduce compilation
time if you're not going to serialize dates
at all. Matter of fact, seeing the includes
in your example

#include "boost/archive/basic_archive.hpp"
#include "boost/serialization/split_free.hpp"
#include "boost/serialization/string.hpp"

I think the two first are unnecessary (could you
try this out? thx)
