Another serialization topic, reduced scope

I was watching Steven's 2019 talk. I'd like to put together a DIP
to specify a collection of attributes which target this very
common pattern of marking up structure. We see it in c# and Java
at runtime, and we see it with different D libraries.
Adding and replacing serialization to the standard library has
had its delays due to expectations of how serialization should be
I think it is clear that attributes on structures is a common
approach placed on top of the actual implementation.
Phobos updates are not traditionally going through a DIP, but I
think this is the right avenue for review.
We see similar attributes used in things like argument parsing.
But here is a short list of what I am thinking from an attribute
Seeing this work through will be hard with a 3y and 3m old, but I
feel this is the type of library support std can provide even
with the benefits of dub.
