That might be a bit confusing then, because a serialization
(as in "a concrete series of bytes representing a dataset")
would be determined by multiple factors,

Access through the non-negotiated identifier;
indicate your preferences in headers.
The server replies with the negotiated response.

It refers to the dataset.
