If the only thing you are concerned about is adding and removing c++
trace context elements, tags, and headers from python, then, yes, it
should work. However, if you want to make it possible to add python
tags/headers/TraceContextElements, then, I am afraid, we are going to
need to add Serialization/Deserialization methods, even for the C++

This is already the case in the current codebase.
