With the Serializer component it's possible to handle serializing data structures, including object graphs, into array structures or other formats like XML and JSON. It can also handle deserializing XML and JSON back to object graphs.

Currently the `Serializer` can be constructed with any object regardless of whether or not it implements `NormalizerInterface` or `DenormalizerInterface`. This object will then be ignored when getting a normalizer/denormalizer, so in effect silently ignored for serializer operations.

This change throws an exception on construct if a given normalizer object does not implement one of these interfaces - are there use cases where this would not be true?
