 Possibly, but I think this makes it hard to connect to other JAX-RS 1.X types (we use the terms reader and writer rather than unmarshaller and marshaller).

 I think the most accurate phrase is "message body interceptors" and perhaps ReaderInterceptor and WriterInterceptor for the types. Maybe if we don't use the term "interceptor" by itself we can get away with this?
