> Source.getDefaultOutputCoder() returns a coder for elements produced by the source.
> However, the Source objects are nearly always hidden from the user and instead encapsulated
in a transform. Often, an enclosing transform has a better idea of what coder should be used
to encode these elements (e.g. a user supplied a Coder to that transform's configuration).
In that case, it'd be good if Source.getDefaultOutputCoder() could just return null, and coder
would have to be handled by the enclosing transform or perhaps specified on the output of
that transform explicitly.
> Right now there's a bunch of code in the SDK and runners that assumes Source.getDefaultOutputCoder()
returns non-null. That code would need to be fixed to instead use the coder set on the collection
produced by Read.from(source).
> It all appears pretty easy to fix, so this is a good starter item.
