This doesn't seem like it adds any value at all and I don't see what problem is being solved.  Adding a cryptic note at the top doesn't make the docs any more readable.  I recommend leaving the iterator factories as-is.  AFAICT, the current docs are not a source of confusion and the text descriptions suffice to explain what is being done.
