Of pipelines, or of steps? It seems to me that the pipeline processor
can do whatever it wants with pipeline outputs. That's explicitly out
of scope.

I don't follow the analogy.

But in any event, my knee jerk reaction to having outputs carry around
extra metadata about their anticipated serialization is strongly
negative.
