Making Commands Serializable?

Is it an oversight or by design that Commands are not Serializable?
Would it be possible to mark the service Commands (like org.activiti.engine.impl.cmd.StartProcessInstanceCmd<ProcessInstance>) Serializable?

Context: this would allow us to initialize the commands on a client and execute them remotely. This was possible with jbpm3 and used by the jbpm-enterprise module. I am currently experimenting with building a similar module for activiti (already works locally in jboss AS 6 ).

I would volunteer making these changes, if they are not vetoed by the core developers :)
