I have one more question in addition to my previous comment:

common_oarchive is in namespace archive::detail while basic_binary_oarchive is in the top namespace archive. Do I understand you correctly that deriving from archive::detail::common_oarchive is safe and not considered depending on implementation details, while deriving from archive::basic_binary_oarchive is not?

I can easily change all the Boost.MPI archives to use archive::detail::common_oarchive where they now use archive::basic_binary_oarchive (although this will not solve the issue we have right now).
