Such a requirement was considered unacceptable for a number
of reviewers. The basic argument against it was that it wouldn't
work with "plug-in" type code where the main progam needs
to be able o dynamically load types which were not defined
at the time the main code was written.

The library does provide a simple portable solution for
those willing to specify the types they expect to use
before they are serialized. This seems similar in effect
to what you propose.
