 Review comment:
   The previous `RecordSerializer` also confuses me a lot and I have the same experience with
you, because the previous `addRecord` and `continueWritingWithNextBufferBuilder`  methods
can be called in arbitrary sequence and both returned `SerializationResult`.
   In my current reconstruction, the method `serializeRecord` must be called firstly, and
then the method `copyToBufferBuilder` is called to return the final `SerializationResult`.
I think it seems a bit clearer than before.
   I agree your above idea is good for separating these two methods further. But the `RecordSerializer`
and `SerializedRecord` may be still close with each other. I think there are two ways to realize
      public SerializedRecord(ByteBuffer lengthBuffer, ByteBuffer dataBuffer) {
       CopingResult copyToBufferBuilder(BufferBuilder bufferBuilder) {
           // copy  lengthBuffer
          // copy dataBuffer
         //  get CopingResult
   So this way the `SerializedRecord` can only see `lengthBuffer` and `dataBuffer`, and can
not interact with `RecordSerializer`. Maybe we do not need do anything in `SerializedRecord#close()`.
    public SerializedRecord(RecordSerializer serializer) {
       CopingResult copyToBufferBuilder(BufferBuilder bufferBuilder) {
           //  get CopingResult
   This way the `SerializedRecord` can see and interact with `RecordSerializer`, but the only
difference seems we separate the `SerializedRecord` and `CopyingResult`. And my current implementation
is we hide the `SerializedRecord` and return `SerializationResult` which corresponds to `CopyingResult`
as final result.
   What do you think of the above ways?
