    Thanks for the link but I think a "SHOULD" is the most appropriate. We don't want to say
MUST since there may not be anything to close. 
    I think the ambiguity stems from the flexibility we have with the Iterators.  Look at
the doc for init for instance: "Initializes the iterator. Data should not be read from the
source in this method."  Do we want to make them more rigid?
    I don't mention Exceptions because I wasn't sure what to say. Sometimes we eat, log and
continue and sometimes we throw.  Do we have best practices for handling exceptions?
    I can change the "Typically" part to be a little more specific.
