Just a couple of minor points that don't really affect the implementation:
* For nulls, let's just mention the underlying serializers already support
this. I'm actually not sure why they should/need to, but given they do,
let's just defer to that implementation.
* I'm not sure where Float and Double converters are actually useful. The
use cases I know for integer serdes is for keys, but floats seem like a bad
choice for keys. These aren't a lot of overhead to build and maintain, but
if we don't know use cases for the specific types, it might be silly to
spend time and effort building and maintaining them.
Otherwise, this seems simple and straightforward. Generally +1 on the
