The situation is asymmetrical because there are many thousands of
user-defined types, but only a handful of serialization frameworks.

In principle. In practice, taking a dependency on Boost.Serialization isn't
desirable because it brings in half of Boost. Ideally, one ought to have
been able to provide serialization support without including anything from
Serialization, but I've been singing this song for more than ten years now
and nobody's listening.
