Hm, if I read the specs right, something looking more or less like 
object serialization is described in " Generic Records".

Wouldn't it be more appropiate to have an own section for object
serialization (e.g. The "generic record" serialization
makes it uneccesarily difficult for objects to serialize 
themselves completely: The object description is broken into 
the type attribute of the property element and the object
content itself. Couln't objects just always be serialized
like in the array case?
