This should say "should be overridden". Or it should say that it "is
expected that". Clearly it's not a "must" situation, since the default method
does exist, and allows them to avoid it. This could cause problems mixing
legacy iterators with new iterators, as the new ones will be expected to be
closed, but the legacy ones won't close them.
