- the condition "does not contain C" is not stated easily in terms of wildcard
  (just consider: what is the "not" of pattern "**/special treatment_area/**"
   and keep in mind, that I do not have control over the undelying namespace
   as I then could move the normal processing to "**/normal/**" e.g.)

- the condition does only affect generators (in my case usually aggregators),
  the rest of the pipeline will be the same
  Thus, using the "return" character of "serialize" would also require multiplying the same
