"There are no attractive alternatives" holds most true, I suspect.
Laziness maybe of folks to come up with something thats actually

And that's more simple?

Wait, I thought this was a conversation about messaging, not about
sending serialized object graphs. You'd do one or the other, not both.

At least I would. Others would too.
