There is already ".yaml" to serialize to yaml and ".perl" to serialize
to Perl (I'm not sure what the limits are round-tripping Perl this way).

They can be returned to Perl in a consistent way, too:

eval($yaml, :lang<yaml>);

Still, these options may not substitute for the kind of role-based
solution you have mind.
