Honestly I think this such a slippery slope that I prefer keeping them in The main reason that we have Iterable and Iterator is that they are closely related to real collections (e.g. Sequence, Set, Mapping).  And generators are related to iterators.  And so on.  To me the force that wants to keep purely about *implementing* ABCs is stronger than the desire to have only things that really are ABCs for collection types in

The module is a bunch of crap that we can't get rid of yet but it should not be used for anything new.
