I think we can make it disabled-by-default now. I think we may want to update the docs on saving projections. It's not clear to me how to save a projection from: http://yt-project.org/doc/analyzing/objects.html#storing-and-loading-objects and I couldn't find a better doc page for projection/2d data object storage.
Anyways, I'm +1 on disabling serialization by default, and would be +0 on getting rid of it completely.

1) Projections 2) Grid hierarchy 3) Field lists
and maybe other things. In general, I think it's a bad idea to just litter directories with new files, and specifically I think it's a bad idea to store 2&3 since they are a huge source of errors for new and existing users.
My preference would be to disable all auto-serialization of anything and make that not possible, mandating explicit, manual saves of data instead. However I recognize that is likely unpopular, as even though my simulations have a lot of data on disk, I know that they also take a relatively short time to project.
So when can we make it disabled-by-default? 2.6? 3.0? Now?
