It's not necessary for the SDO to implement Serializable. This is only  
necessary if serialization using ObjectOutputStream is used as the  
persistence method, and this should be an implementation detail hidden  
from the API.

Beside that, DTO (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Data_Transfer_Object)  
would probably be a better name since it is known to a wider audience.
