Serialized data in plugins and Wordpress configuration won't be fixed
by a search/replace. And doing that sounds logic for who knows what
SQL is. Users will be stuck on this.

While working with the XML migration, users won't think about opening
the file to replace the links too. We expect a migration to be truly a
complete migration.
