Oh no. registering a data type for export would be sufficient
for plug-ins AND serialization.

So I would like to see:

a) a plug-in library based on ehancement of extended_type_info
b) serialization tweaked to use this library.

The we get a "smaller" serialization library - and a separate
self contained library which is useful for other things. Just
a little code re-factoring.
