It would probably be ok to fallback on read() when read1() isn't implemented. read1() is supposed to be implemented by all BufferedIO-compliant classes, but in all honesty I don't think it's very useful in practice. It's supposed to be an optimization, and I think it's a misguided one; the generalized prefetch() primitive I proposed last year would certainly be more useful: see http://mail.python.org/pipermail/python-dev/2010-September/104194.html
