The implementation for general case seems a bit tricky, because some constrained
objects (e.g., bounded_int<int, 1, 10>::type) should not be default-constructed
by the Serialization library. Therefore, if I understand correctly,
load_construct_data() /save_construct_data() should be overloaded rather than
serialize() provided (but I'm not sure about this, I haven't used Serialization

Possibly by specialising non-member serialize() / load_construct_data()
